Data Sheet

6063 – T6 Extrusions

Aluminium Alloy 6063
Aluminium alloy 6063 is a medium strength alloy commonly referred to as an architectural alloy. It is normally used in intricate extrusions.
It has a good surface finish, high corrosion resistance, is readily suited to welding and can be easily anodised. Most commonly available as T6 temper, in the T4 condition it has good formability.

Applications

6063 is typically used in:

  • Architectural applications
  • Extrusions
  • Window frames
  • Doors
  • Shop fittings
  • Irrigation tubing

In balustrading the rails and posts are normally in the T6 temper and formed elbows and bends are T4. T4 temper 6063 aluminium is also finding applications in hydroformed tube for chassis.

Aluminium Alloy 6063A

Aluminium alloy 6063A is a variation of 6063 with greater strength but retains the same good surface finish qualities and affinity for anodising.

Applications

6063A is used in the same applications as 6063. It is also used in:
Road transport
Rail transport
Extreme sports equipment

Temper Types

The most common tempers for 6063 aluminium are:

  • O – Soft
  • T6 – Solution heat treated and artificially aged
Weldability

Alloy 6063 is suitable for all conventional welding methods. Welding wire generally should be alloy 5183 or alloy 4043. When maximum electrical conductivity is required use alloy 4043.

For strength and conductivity use alloy 5346 and increase the size of the weld to compensate for the lower conductivity.

Weldability – Gas: Good
Weldability – Arc: Very Good
Weldability – Resistance: Good
Brazability: Very Good
Solderability: Good

Drawing Spec

With recent events, it’s really important to know that what kind of fire standards the cladding you’re using on your building is held to. By law, all buildings above 18 metres in height need to have cladding which is fire rated. Most cladding has some sort of protection built in, but only those which are FR should be used on these taller buildings. 

These ratings range from an A1 to a D in accordance with European Standards EN-13501-1.

What does A1 and A2 Rated mean?

Class A1 – Products are described as having no contribution to fire at any stage. BS EN 13501 sets several thresholds for combustion performance when tested to both EN ISO 1716 and EN ISO 1182. One of these thresholds is a maximum heat of combustion of 2MJ/kg. Typical products meeting this classification include most inorganic materials such as metal and stone.

Class A2, s3, d2 – Products are described as having no significant contribution to fire at any stage. BS EN 13501 sets several thresholds for combustion when tested to EN ISO 1182, or both EN ISO 1716 and EN 13823. One of these thresholds is a maximum heat of combustion of 3MJ/kg. A typical product meeting this classification is plasterboard.For comparison, Wood has a typical value of 15 MJ/Kg.

Some products use a slightly different fire classification known as the BR 135 standard, set by the BRE (Building Research Establishment). When using a cladding product that is classified using this method, a full classification report must be supplied to prove compliance with BR 135.
