6082 Commercial Aluminium Alloy6082 Aluminium Alloy

Commercial Aluminium Alloy

6082 aluminium alloy has the highest strength of all the 6000 series alloys.

Often referred to as a 'structural alloy', 6082 is used predominantly in highly stressed applications such as trusses, cranes and bridges. The alloy offers excellent corrosion resistance and has replaced 6061 in many applications. The extruded finish is not as smooth and therefore not as aesthetically pleasing as other alloys in the 6000 series.

Key Features:

6082 offers good machinability with excellent corrosion resistance. Available in bar, plate, sheet and tube, the alloy is used in structural applications and is preferred to 6061.
