Aluminum 6020

Aluminum 6020 is a wrought alloy that offers users good joining characteristics. This strong alloy has excellent corrosion resistance, machinability, and responds well to anodizing. Because Aluminum 6020 is lead-free, it often replaces Aluminum 6262 in situations where higher levels of environmental safety are critical.

If you demand excellent, residual stress control T8 tempering is suggested.  The composition of Aluminum 6020 includes a number of different chemicals including:

  • Al 93.9-97.8%
  • Sn 0.9-1.5%
  • Si 0.40-0.90%
  • Fe 0.50%
  • Cu 0.30-0.90%
  • Mn 0.35%
  • Mg 0.6-1.2%
  • Cr 0.15%
  • Zn 0.20%
  • Ti 0.15%

Thanks to its unique capabilities, Aluminum 6020 is in use in a number of critical industrial and commercial applications including:

  • Automotive transmission valves
  • Camera parts
  • Compressor pistons
  • Pins
  • Fittings
  • Brake pistons
  • Hinge pins
  • CATV connectors
  • AC compressor pistons
  • Tripod fittings
