6061 T6 Aluminum Sheet VS 1060 Aluminum Sheet

Both 1060 aluminum sheet and 6061 marine grade aluminum are the commonly used aluminum plates in the industry. There are big differences between the two in terms of price, hardness, and scope of use. Let’s have a look together.

Chemical Composition

1060 aluminum sheet belong to pure aluminum plates with aluminum content reaching more than 99.6%. It has moderate hardness and low price. 6061 t6 aluminum plate belong to Al-Mg-Si alloy, which has a certain composition of silicon and magnesium. It has a certain degree of wear resistance and rust resistance. Its strength is much higher than 1060 aluminum sheet.


The hardness of 1060 is moderate, which can adapt to common processing conditions, such as bending, while the hardness of 6061 is better, which is widely used in places with high hardness requirements. The common aluminum plate thickness of 6061 alloy is 6-100 mm.

At the same time, 6061aluminum plates can be heat treated. 6061-T6 aluminum sheet is such a temper, which is suitable for mold and machinery manufacturing industries.

Application scope

1060 aluminum strip is a main material for the manufacture of transformer winding, which directly affects the quality of the transformer. It is also used as the base plate of positive PS plate, thermal CTP plate, photosensitive CTP plates, UV-CTP plates, etc.

It is also a main aluminum bottle cap material for wine, cosmetic, medical bottle, beverage,etc. There are high requirements for the processing of bottle cap materials, such as flat shape and excellent deep stamping performance.

6061 t6 aluminum sheet with medium strength, certain corrosion resistance and good wear resistance are widely used in different industries such as ship deck, bicycle, mold, automobile wheel, manhole cover,etc. Welcome to leave message below to inquire what you need.
