6082 aluminium alloy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

6082 aluminium alloy  is an alloy in the wrought aluminium-magnesium-silicon family (6000 or  6xxx series). It is one of the more popular alloys in its series  (alongside alloys 60056061, and 6063), although it is not strongly featured in ASTM  (North American) standards. It is typically formed by extrusion and  rolling, but as a wrought alloy it is not used in casting. It can also  be forged and clad, but that is not common practice with this alloy. It  cannot be work hardened, but is commonly heat treated to produce tempers with a higher strength but lower ductility.

Alternate names and designations include AlSi1MgMn, 3.2315, H30, and  A96082. The alloy and its various tempers are covered by the following  standards:

  • EN 485-2: Aluminium and aluminium alloys. Sheet, strip and plate. Mechanical properties

  • EN 573-3: Aluminium and aluminium alloys. Chemical composition and  form of wrought products. Chemical composition and form of products

  • EN 754-2: Aluminium and aluminium alloys. Cold drawn rod/bar and tube. Mechanical properties

  • EN 755-2: Aluminium and aluminium alloys. Extruded rod/bar, tube and profiles. Mechanical properties

  • ISO 6361: Wrought Aluminium and Aluminium Alloy Sheets, Strips and Plates
