ALUMINUM 6061-T6; 6061-T651 General 6061 characteristics and uses: Excellent joining characteristics, good acceptance of applied coatings. Combines relatively high strength, good work ability, and high resistance to corrosion; widely available. The T8 and T9 tempers offer better chipping characteristics over the T6 temper. Density 2.70 g/cc 0.0975 lb/in³ Hardness, Brinell 95.0 Hardness, Rockwell A 40.0
ALUMINUM 5052 This alloy has good work ability, very good corrosion resistance, high fatigue strength, weld ability, and moderate strength. This leads to its use in aircraft fuel/oil lines, fuel tanks, other transportation areas, sheet metal work, appliances and lighting, wire, and rivets. Density 2.68 g/cc 0.0968 lb/in³ Hardness, Brinell 60.0
A36 MILD STEEL A36 is one of the most widely used grades of steel plate, which is a common structural steel used in the United States. A36 is readily welded by nearly all welding processes, and is also commonly bolted and riveted in structural applications. Density 7.85 g/cc 0.284 lb/in³
Hardness, Rockwell B 67.0 - 83.0
A286 STAINLESS Alloy A-286 is designed for applications requiring high strength and good corrosion resistance at temperatures up to 1300 °F(704 °C). Alloy A-286 has been used in jet engines,superchargers and various high temperature applications such as turbine wheels and blades,frames,casings,afterburner parts and fasteners.
304 STAINLESS STEEL
Austenitic Cr-Ni stainless steel. Better corrosion resistance than Type 302. High ductility, excellent drawing, forming, and spinning properties. Essentially non-magnetic, becomes slightly magnetic when cold worked. Low carbon content means less carbide precipitation in the heat-affected zone during welding and a lower susceptibility to inter granular corrosion.
Applications: beer kegs, bellows, chemical equipment, coal hopper linings, cooking equipment, cooling coils, cryogenic vessels, dairy equipment, evaporators, flatware utensils, feedwater tubing, flexible metal hose, food processing equipment, hospital surgical equipment, hypodermic needles, kitchen sinks, marine equipment and fasteners, nuclear vessels, oil well filter screens, refrigeration equipment, paper industry, pots and pans, pressure vessels, sanitary fittings, valves, shipping drums, spinning, still tubes, textile dyeing equipment, tubing.
Corrosion Resistance: resists most oxidizing acids and salt spray.
ROCKWELL HARDNESS 70 Density 8.00 g/cc
316 STAINLESS STEEL
316 stainless steel has a high resistance to many chemical corrodents and marine atmospheres. 316 stainless steels are more resistant to general corrosion and pitting/crevices than conventional austenitic stainless steels. 316/316L stainless steels also offer higher creep, stress-to-rupture and tensile strength at elevated temperatures. 316 are also well suited for fabricated or formed applications.
Common Applications Oil & petroleum refining equipment, Food processing equipment, Pulp and paper processing equipment, Soap and photographic handling equipment, Textile Industry Equipment, Architectural Pharmaceutical processing equipment.
