EN AW-6061: The medium-strength aluminum alloy WL 3.3214 for versatile applications

As a semi-finished product, aluminum offers various advantages such as low density, high corrosion resistance and thermal conductivity. Given this fact, it is particularly relevant for areas in which low weight combined with high loading capacity is crucial. The strength of pure aluminum can be increased by adding alloying elements or via heat treatment.

The aluminum alloy EN-AW-6061 is one of the most frequently used wrought aluminum alloys as a component of the AlMgSi alloys: WL 3.3214 is used in vehicle, ship, boiler, and tank construction as well as for defense technology or aerospace. Furthermore, the material is used in electronic devices such as laptops or smartphones. robemetall stocks EN AW-6061 in a variety of shapes, so we can also meet individual cutting requirements precisely and quickly.
