Properties and Selection of Aluminum Alloys
6063: Extrusion Alloy
Many characteristics of extrusion alloy 6063 are similar to those of 6061 with slightly better formability and general corrosion resistance. This datasheet provides information on composition limits, fabrication characteristics, processing effects on physical and mechanical properties, mill product specifications, and applications of this 6xxx series alloy. The characteristics of alloy 6063 are compared with related alloys and tempers.
