Before the raw material of aluminium can be made into an aluminium profile, it has to be formed into a press-capable bolt by means of continuous casting. In order to achieve higher strength values, additional metals, such as silicone or magnesium, are added to the pure aluminium. These alloys get their highest strength by means of heat treatment. aluscreen supplies aluminium profiles of the following alloys and strengths:

 

6060 T4 (AlMgSi0,5 F13)

6060 T64 (AlMgSi0,5 F18)

6060 T66 (AlMgSi0,5 F22)

6063 T4 (AlMgSi0,5 F15)

6063 T66 (AlMgSi0,5 F25)

6005A T4 (AlMgSi0,7 F18)

6005A T6 (AlMgSi0,7 F27)

6082 T4 (AlMgSi1 F21)

6082 T5 (AlMgSi1 F28)

6082 T6 (AlMgSi1 F31)

 

The old alloy designation is put in brackets.
