Introduction

Aluminium / aluminum is a silverish white metal that is very versatile and can be cast into any form known. Aluminium / aluminum can be combined with a range of elements - copper, magnesium, manganese, silicon and zinc, to form aluminium / aluminum alloys.

Aluminium / aluminum alloys are known for their strong corrosion resistance. They are sensitive to high temperatures and can lose some amount of their strength. However, the strength of the aluminium / aluminum alloys can be improved at subzero temperatures, thus making them perfect low-temperature alloys.

Aluminium / aluminum 6010 alloy is a wrought alloy type. The following datasheet will provide more details about aluminium / aluminum 6010 alloy.
