Extruded alloys and tempers: Properties
Extruded alloys and tempers:
Cosmos aluminium can extrude the majority of 6XXX alloy series in various
tempers but most common
alloys & tempers used are:
The more the content of Mg and Si, the harder the alloy to extrude and the harder the final product. See
datasheets.

ALLOY DATA SHEET
EN AW 6005A [AlSiMgA]
ALLOY TYPE:
MEDIUM STRENGTH
EN AW 6005A is a heat treated medium strength alloy, suitable for moderate load applications and exhibits excellent
corrosion resistance. Within the 6XXX family, the strength of 6005A is between that of 6063 and 6082, with its properties
approaching more on the 6082 side. This is why 6005A can be used interchangeably with 6082, while retaining much
better surface and allowing better extrusion speeds. Complex and thin walled shapes are not possible to produce. Typical
areas of application for this alloy is railway, coaches, truck profiles, pylon & towers, tubes for scaffolding, masts and
beams for ship building.

ALLOY TYPE:
HIGH STRENGTH
EN AW 6082 is a medium to high strength alloy, suitable for high load applications and exhibits excellent corrosion
resistance. It has the highest strength of the 6XXX alloys. The addition of large amounts of Mn controls the grain size
thus resulting to a stronger alloy. Complex and thin walled shapes are not possible to produce and the surface finish
smoothness is inferior to that of 6060. Typical areas of application for this alloy is heavy duty structures in rail coaches,
truck frames, bicycles, pylon & towers, tubes for scaffolding, masts and beams for ship building..
