Aluminum Association Standards

    aluminum association

  • The Aluminum Association is a trade association for the aluminum production, fabrication and recycling industries, and their suppliers. The Association is a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization based in Arlington, Virginia, United States. (The Association was based in Washington, D.C. until .)

    standards

  • A required or agreed level of quality or attainment
  • (standard) criterion: the ideal in terms of which something can be judged; “they live by the standards of their community”
  • A level of quality or attainment
  • An idea or thing used as a measure, norm, or model in comparative evaluations
  • (standard) conforming to or constituting a standard of measurement or value; or of the usual or regularized or accepted kind; “windows of standard width”; “standard sizes”; “the standard fixtures”; “standard brands”; “standard operating procedure”
  • (standard) a basis for comparison; a reference point against which other things can be evaluated; “the schools comply with federal standards”; “they set the measure for all subsequent work”

Aluminum 6061 is one of the most widely used alloys in the 6000 series. This standard structural alloy, one of the most versatile of the heat-treatable alloys, is popular for medium to high strength requirements and has good toughness characteristics. Alloy 6061 has excellent corrosion resistance to atmospheric conditions and good corrosion resistance to seawater. This alloy also offers good finishing characteristics and responds well to anodizing; however, where cosmetic appearance is critical, consider the use of alloy 6063. For screw machine applications, alloy 6061 has adequate machinability characteristics in the heat-treated -T6/-T6511 condition. Chips from machining (particularly turning and drilling) can be difficult to break in the -T6/-T6511 temper condition. Chip breakers are recommended, and special machining techniques (i.e. peck drilling) can improve chip formation.
