Aluminum alloy 6082 is a medium strength alloy with excellent corrosion resistance.
It is the strongest of the 6000 series alloys.Alloy 6082 is known as a structural alloy. In sheet form, 6082 is the alloy most commonly used for machining. As a relatively new alloy, 6082's higher strength has allowed it to replace 6061 in many applications.
Adding large amounts of manganese can control the grain structure, resulting in a stronger alloy.
It is difficult to produce thin-walled, complex extrusion shapes in alloy 6082. The extruded surface finish is not as smooth as other similar strength alloys in the 6000 series.
In the T6 and T651 states, alloy 6082 works well and produces tight chip coils when the chip breaker is used.Apply
6082 is commonly used for:
~ High stress applications
~ Transportation Applications
~ ore machine
~ Beer keg
~ Milk mixer
The most common tempering states of 6082 aluminum are:
T6 - Solution heat treatment and artificial aging
T4-solution heat treatment and natural aging to a basically stable state
T651 - Solution heat treatment, stress relief by stretching, followed by artificial aging
