6061 Aluminum Bar Stock

6061 aluminum bar stock is a lightweight material renowned for its excellent corrosion resistance, making it highly versatile for framing, shelving, and outdoor railings. Specifically designed for extrusion, this aluminum grade is commonly used for extruded bars. 

Mills can straighten the aluminum round bar stocks through a milling and pressing process, ensuring they meet strict straightness tolerance requirements. Different temper variations of 6061 aluminum grades exist, characterized by the heat treatment applied to the material.

The aluminum round bar exhibits an ultimate tensile strength of approximately 42,000 psi or 290 MPa and a yield strength of around 35,000 psi or 240 MPa. It demonstrates an elongation of 8% in thinner sections and 10% in thicker sections. While most 6061 grades possess similar mechanical properties, alloys with different tempers can exhibit variations in surface conductivity and anodizing rates, affecting their appearance when exposed to different environments or chemical treatments.

Purpose and Applications of 6061 Aluminum Bar Stock

It finds extensive use in various applications, including:

  • Secondary chambers and baffle systems
  • Ultra-high vacuum chambers
  • Bicycle frames and components
  • Parts for remote-controlled model aircraft
  • Helicopter rotor components
  • Upper and lower receivers for rifles
  • Fly fishing reels
  • Aluminum docks and gangways

The 6061 aluminum round bar, also known as 6061 aluminum bars, offers versatility for numerous manufacturing applications. It is widely used in industries such as aerospace, automotive, and electronics. With a diameter range of 0.5 to 3 inches, this round bar is ideal for producing aircraft parts, automotive structures, and various components.
