Five basic tempers of 6061 aluminum plate

Five basic tempers of 6061 aluminum plate

            The aluminum plate refers to a rectangular plate which is rolled by aluminum ingot, and is divided into pure aluminum plate, aluminum alloy plate, thin aluminum plate, medium-thick aluminum plate, and embossed aluminum plate.

The basic temper of the 6061 aluminum plate is divided into five types, F, H, O, T, and W. These five tempers represent the five treatment processes of the aluminum plate. The price and performance of the aluminum plate are different under different conditions.


6061 aluminum plate is one of SIGMA ALUMINUM's superior products. It has mature processing technology, good oxidation effect and uniform quenching. It is widely used in mobile phone cases, automobile wheels, 3C products, etc., and enjoys a good reputation and reputation. SIGMA ALUMINUM explains the five different tempers of the 6061 aluminum alloy panel.

F Free-machining condition Applicable to products that have no special requirements for work hardening and heat treatment conditions during the molding process. The mechanical properties of the product are not specified.

O Annealed condition Applicable to processed products that are obtained after full annealing.

H Work hardening temper Applicable to products that increase strength by work hardening. The product can be subjected to additional heat treatment after the work hardening can be passed through (or not).

W Solid-melt heat treatment temper Treatment temper an unstable temper, only applicable to alloys that are naturally aged at room temperature after solution heat treatment. This temper code only indicates that the product is in the natural aging stage.

T Heat treatment temper (different from F, O, H temper) is suitable for products that have been stabilized after (or without) work hardening after heat treatment. The T code must be followed by one or more Arabic digits. The number of digits after the T word indicates the basic type of heat treatment (from 1 to 10), and the digits thereafter indicate changes in the details of the heat treatment. Such as 6061-T 62; 5083-H 343 and so on.
