1060 aluminium alloy

1060 aluminum material is formed by pure aluminum plus a small amount of copper elements. It has high plasticity, corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity, but its strength is low, heat treatment cannot be strengthened, and its machinability is not good; it can be welded by gas welding, hydrogen atom welding and Contact welding, not easy to braze; easy to withstand various pressure processing and extension, bending.

The production process of 1060 aluminum sheet/coil is relatively simple, the technology is relatively mature, and the price has a huge advantage over other high-grade alloy aluminum sheets. With good elongation and tensile strength, it can fully meet the conventional processing requirements (stamping, stretching) and high formability.

Common product types of 1060 aluminum alloy
1060 aluminum sheet 1060 aluminum coil 1060 aluminum strip 1060 aluminum circle 1060 aluminum foil
1060 aluminum sheet 1060 aluminum coil 1060 aluminum strip 1060 aluminum circle 1060 aluminum foil

1060 aluminum alloy is widely used in products that do not require high strength, such as billboards, building exterior decoration, bus body, chemical instruments, sheet metal processing parts, deep-drawing or rotating concave containers, welding parts, heat exchangers, watch surfaces And disk surfaces, nameplates, kitchen utensils, decorations, reflective appliances, etc.

What is the meaning of 1060 H14

1060 represents the alloy composition, which can be considered as the grade of aluminum;

H14 is the heat treatment state of the aluminum alloy. The same alloy composition has different heat treatment states, and its mechanical properties are different;

Aluminium 1060 equivalent

It is fundamentally very similar to 1050 aluminium alloy, with the difference coming down to 0.1% aluminium by weight. However, while both 1050 and 1060 are covered by the same ISO standard, they are covered by different ASTM standards.

ASTM B404 ASTM B483 ASTM B548 SAE J454
UNS A91060

Alternative names include Al99.6 and A91060. It is described in the following standards:

ASTM B 209: Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum Alloy Sheet and Plate

ASTM B 210: Standard Specification for Drawn Seamless Tubing of Aluminum and Aluminum Alloys

ASTM B 211: Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum Alloy Bar, Rod, and Wire

ASTM B 221: Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum Alloy Extruded Rods, Rods, Wire, Shapes, and Tubes

ASTM B 483: Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum Alloy Drawn Tubing for General Applications

Heat treatment process of aluminum 1060

Rapid annealing: heating temperature 350~410℃;

According to the effective thickness of the material, the holding time is between 30 and 120 minutes; air-cooled or water-cooled.

High temperature annealing: heating temperature 350~500℃;

When the thickness of the finished product is ≥ 6mm, the holding time is 10-30 minutes, and when it is less than 6mm, heat it to pass; air cooling.

Low temperature annealing: heating temperature 150~250℃; holding time 2~3h; air cooling or water cooling.
