6082 Aluminium Bar

Structural aluminium alloy.

6082 aluminium - the highest strength 6000 series alloy currently available.

Known as a structural alloy, 6082 aluminium represents the highest strength 6000 series alloy currently available.

The material possesses medium strength with good corrosion resistance, workability and anodising properties. This strength is achieved by the inclusion of manganese in the alloying process, which affords greater control of the grain structure. Weldability is good, but overall strength around the welding zone is reduced. Machinability is particularly good in T6 and T651 tempers, producing tight swarf coils when a chip breaker is in use.

Stock Availability

Smiths Advanced Metals stocks 6082 aluminium bars in a variety of shapes, sizes and tempers (including T4, T6, T6510 and T6511 tempers).
