Commonly supplied in T1, T4 and T5 tempers, 6063 aluminium extrusions are among the most popular commercially produced extruded products.
It is known as an architectural alloy due to the materials' aesthetically pleasing finish, making it an excellent choice for applications requiring a high level of finish. Anodising is easy due to the materials' smooth surface making the alloy a popular choice in extruded architectural shapes. The material offers excellent corrosion resistance, particularly to stress corrosion.
6063 aluminium promotes good weldability, although post-weld heat treatment may be required around joints due to material softening. The mechanical properties of the alloy can vary greatly depending on the temper. 6063A aluminium extrusions offer the same characteristics as 6063 but with greater strength.
6063 aluminium finds use in a wide range of architectural applications such as window frames, shop fittings, balustrading and architectural fascias. 6063A shares these commercial applications, and due to the alloy's greater strength, the extrusions can also be used in areas such as rail and road transport and extreme sports.
