Easily cold worked, or cold formed in either the annealed or aged conditions. Use of an oil base lubricant during machining operations is recommended.

Welding by all of the standard processes may be done, including gas torch welding. Filler rod of the same alloy should be used.

ASTM B317 Grade 6101 T6

The bars, rods, tubes, pipes, structural profiles and profiles shall be produced by hot extrusion or by similar methods. T61 F for 6 hours and air cool. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

T63 F for 19 hours and air cool. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Either carbide or high speed tool steel tooling may be used. T61 – 17 ksi. No data, although the alloy is considered forgeable.

Hardens due to cold working or aging heat treatment — see “Aging”. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.


Machinability by conventional means is good. Aging is done at different temperatures and times, depending upon the finished temper desired as follows: When welded in the heat treated condition the subsequent parts will be lower in strength because of weld heat input. This specification covers aluminum-alloy extruded bar, rod, tube, pipe, Schedules 40 and 80structural profiles, and profiles in selected tempers for use as electric conductors.

Type A material, last aatm in the issue of astj specification, is no longer available; therefore, requirements for cold-finished rectangular bar have been b137. T63 – 21 ksi.

Modulus of Elasticity Tension. Distributors will offer small quantity buys while mills will generally only sell large quantities, with delivery times anywhere from 10 to 50 weeks depending on astk and form required This material is stocked primarily in Bar Products by 7 distributors but is also available to a lesser extent in Tubular Products.

See also Cold Working. Shear strength values are: Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. It is hardened strengthened by heat treatment. This is a high electrical conductivity aluminum alloy also possessing good mechanical strength properties. The AL alloy does respond to heat treatment which is accomplished by annealing and relatively low temperature aging. Forming characteristics are good by conventional processes.

6101 Aluminum Bar

A stress relief anneal after cold working may be done at F with air cooling. Pipe or tube may be produced through porthole or bridge type dies.


Electrical resistivity and conductivity shall be determined. Annealing is done at F for 3 hours at temperature, followed by controlled cooling at a rate of 50 F per hour down to F, then air cool.

T6 F for 20 hours and air cool. The preferred method of welding is by means of inert gas arc welding for best results. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore each system shall be used independently of the other. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. See “Annealing” and “Aging”. It ast informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.

Hot working generally is not required v317 the alloy has very good cold working characteristics. Electrical bus bar conductor applications for use in enclosed bus electrical installations. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. T6 – 22 ksi.

Tensile properties of the specimens such as tensile and yield strengths and bending shall be determined by tension test and bending test, respectively.
