6063 aluminum solid round bar is a low-alloy Al-Mg-Si series high plastic alloy.
It has many valuable features:
1. Heat treatment strengthened, high impact toughness, insensitive to defects.
2. With excellent thermoplasticity, it can be extruded at high speed into complex,thinwalled, hollow profiles or forgings with complex structures, wide quenching temperature range, low quenching sensitivity, after extrusion and forging demoulding, As long as the temperature is higher than the quenching temperature. It can be quenched with water spray or through water. Thin-walled parts (6<3mm) can also be wind quenched.
3. Excellent welding performance and corrosion resistance, no stress corrosion cracking tendency. Among the heat-treatable aluminum alloys, the Al-Mg-Si series alloy is the only alloy that has no stress corrosion cracking phenomenon.
4. After processing, the surface is very smooth and easy to anodize and color. The disadvantage is that after quenching, if it is parked at room temperature for a period of time and then aged, it will have an adverse effect on the strength (parking effect).
