6005 aluminium alloy
Sep 11, 2016

6005 aluminium alloy


6005 aluminium alloy is an alloy in the wrought aluminium-magnesium-silicon family (6000 or 6xxx series). It is closely related, but not identical, to 6005A aluminium alloy. The main difference between the two alloys is that 6005 has a higher minimum composition percentage of aluminium than 6005A (while having essentially the same maximum). The most common forming method is extrusion. It can also be forged or rolled, but as a wrought alloy it is not used in casting. It cannot be work hardened, but is commonly heat treated to produce tempers with a higher strength at the expense of ductility.

Alternate names and designations include AlSiMg and A96005. The alloy and its various tempers are covered by the following standards:

·         ASTM B 221: Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum-Alloy Extruded Bars, Rods, Wire, Profiles, and Tubes

·         EN 573-3: Aluminium and aluminium alloys. Chemical composition and form of wrought products. Chemical composition and form of products

·         EN 755-2: Aluminium and aluminium alloys. Extruded rod/bar, tube and profiles. Mechanical properties

·         ISO 6361: Wrought Aluminium and Aluminium Alloy Sheets, Strips and Plates

Chemical Composition

The alloy composition of 6005 aluminium is:

·         Aluminium: 97.5 to 99.0%

·         Chromium: 0.1% max

·         Copper: 0.1% max

·         Iron: 0.35% max

·         Magnesium: 0.4 to 0.6%

·         Manganese: 0.1% max

·         Silicon: 0.6 to 0.9%

·         Titanium: 0.1% max

·         Zinc: 0.1% max

·         Residuals: 0.15% max


Typical material properties for 6005 aluminium alloy include:

·         Density: 2.70 g/cm3, or 169 lb/ft3.

·         Young's modulus: 69 GPa, or 10 Msi.

·         Ultimate tensile strength: 190 to 300 MPa, or 28 to 44 ksi.

·         Yield strength: 100 to 260 MPa, or 15 to 38 ksi.

·         Thermal Expansion: 23 µm/m-K.
