Abstract

ALCOA 6009 ALLOY offers the potential for lighter weight panels than steel or other aluminum alloy auto body sheet. It provides comparable performance, compatibility with existing production processes and a reasonable cost per unit of weight saved. It provides better dent resistance than most other aluminum body sheet alloys. Alloy 6009 has formability close to Aluminum 5182 with significantly higher weight savings. Scrap compatibility eliminates the segregation problems of mixed 2xxx and 5xxx scrap. Alloy 6009 scrap is readily recycled into itself or into casting alloys. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, elasticity, and tensile properties as well as fatigue. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as forming and heat treating. Filing Code: Al-262. Producer or source: Aluminum Company of America.
