High Corrosion Resistance 6013 Aluminum Sheet Plate Suitable For Primary Structure Like Aeroplane Fuselage Panels
is a wrought alloy that offers high strength, and excellent compressive properties. The formability and corrosion resistance of Aluminum 6013 are also outstanding.
6013 is a new medium strength aerospace alloy that provides improved corrosion resistance and formability for use in aerospace applications including primary aircraft structures. Alloy 6013 is an aluminum-magnesium-silicon-copper alloy that has yield strengths 12% higher than alclad 2024-T3 and is virtually immune to exfoliation and stress corrosion cracking. Industry use has demonstrated that 6013 in the T4 condition has better stretch forming characteristics than other aerospace aluminum alloys.
Alloy 6013 is receiving consideration in most new programs taking advantage of the improved formability, lower density and corrosion resistance.
Aluminum 6013 applications including:
ABS braking systems
Roller blade parts
Military and civilian aircraft parts / Uses for 6013 include primary structural applications including fuselage panels, leading and trailing edges and engine cowlings.
