6026 Aluminium Alloy

Commercial Aluminium

6026 Commercial Aluminium Alloy

Recently developed to meet European Environmental Protection Directives, 6026 aluminium alloy offers excellent corrosion resistance and is suitable for anodising to provide both decorative and hard anodised finishes.

High-Speed Machining

The alloy does not contain Tin (Sn) as the inclusion of this element may cause cracking in machined parts when subjected to stress and high temperature. 6026 is highly suitable for extensive machining, especially in use with high-speed automatic lathes.


6026 commercial aluminium alloy offers excellent corrosion resistance and is suitable for anodising.

Typical Applications

Commercial applications for this engineering material include:

  • Automotive components
  • Hard anodising

We stock 6026 in round tube.
