6082 Aluminium Plate

Structural aluminium alloy.

In aluminium terms, 6082 is relatively new and has effectively replaced 6061 aluminium.

6082 structural aluminium plate finds use in high strength applications and is the highest strength 6000 series alloy.

6082 is a medium-strength aluminium that combines good corrosion resistance, workability and anodising properties. In aluminium terms, 6082 is relatively new and has effectively replaced 6061 aluminium in many applications. The alloy is typically used for machining in plate form and is commonly referred to as a structural alloy. Typical use includes high-stress applications such as cranes and bridges. Weldability of 6082 is generally good though overall strength around the welding zone is reduced. Machinability is good, particularly T6 and T651 tempers, where the use of a chip breaker is recommended, which results in tight swarf coils.

Stock Availability

We stock 6082 aluminium plates in a wide range of sizes and tempers, including T6 and T651 tempers.
