Physical Properties
Other Designations


Aluminum alloys are known for their strong corrosion resistance. They are sensitive to high temperatures ranging between 200 and 250°C (392 and 482°F), and can lose some amount of their strength. However, the strength of the aluminum alloys can be enhanced at subzero temperatures, thus making them perfect low-temperature alloys.

The aluminum 6060 alloy is a wrought alloy type. The following datasheet will provide more details about the aluminum 6060 alloy.
