Abstract

ALCOA 6010 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 and mild steel of equal gage. Alloy 6010 formability is equal to that of 2036- T4 while offering greater strength. Scrap compatibility eliminates the segregation problems of mixed 2xxx and 5xxx scrap. Alloy 6010 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, heat treating, and joining. Filing Code: Al-264. Producer or source: Aluminum Company of America.
