... version of alloy 6061. It has higher Si (1.0% nominal) and a Mn content of 0.65%. The alloy was promoted as a higher toughness alternative to alloy 6061 for use in applications requiring good resistance to impact loading ( Ref 1 ). Toughness of the alloy was much less affected by quench rate than other 6...
