Used at temperatures from 65-200°C.

Good weldability and corrosion resistance.

Pressure vessels and road tankers. Transport of ammonium nitrate, petroleum.

 

Chemical plants.

S,P
5083*/5182 Non-heat treatable.

 

Good weldability and corrosion resistance.

Very resistant to sea water, industrial atmospheres.

A superior alloy for cryogenic use (in annealed condition)

Ship building structure in general.

S,P,E
6063* Heat treatable.

 

Medium strength alloy.

Good weldability and corrosion resistance.

Used for intricate profiles.

Architectural extrusions (internal and external), window frames, irrigation pipes. E
6061*/6082* Heat treatable.

 

Medium strength alloy.

Good weldability and corrosion resistance.

Stressed structural members, bridges, cranes, roof trusses, beer barrels. S,P,E
6005A Heat treatable.

 

Properties very similar to 6082.

Preferable as air quenchable, therefore has less distortion problems.

Not notch sensitive.

Thin walled wide extrusions. E
7020 Heat treatable.

 

Age hardens naturally therefore will recover properties in heat affected zone after welding.

Susceptible to stress corrosion.

Good ballistic deterrent properties.

Armoured vehicles, military bridges, motor cycle and bicycle frames. P,E
7075 Heat treatable.

 

Very high strength.

Non-weldable.

Poor corrosion resistance.

Airframes. E,P
