Aluminum alloys are categorised into casting alloys and wrought alloys. They are graded with a 4-digit number which identifies their major alloying element. For example, the 2XXX aluminium alloy includes copper, 4XXX includes silicon, and 6XXX includes magnesium and silicon.
Wrought alloys, such as the 6061 alloy, are extruded, rolled or forged into specified shapes. Some are heat-treated or cold-worked to increase their strength and hardness, corrosion resistance, ease of fabrication and other advantages.
The alpha-numeric suffix, such as T6, represents the temper or degree of hardness. It also represents the method used to obtain the hardness. For example, in the 6061T6 aluminum alloy, the “T6” indicates that it was heat treated with a solution and artificially aged.
