Anticorodal Bar
EN AW 6026

The main applications for turning, electrical applications, and the automotive industry.

An innovative alloy that meets all environmental requirements. Alloy 6026 represents a perfect compromise between the high workability of alloy 2011, and the suitability for anodic oxidation of the 6000 series alloys. Widely used for hot moulding and high-speed machining on automatic lathes.

technical characteristics

  • Workability: very good
  • Suitability for oxidation: very good
  • Hard anodisation: excellent
  • Hot plastic deformability: excellent
  • Weldability: excellent

Availability

The alloy 6026 is available extruded in the physical state T6, and drawn in the physical state T3/T8. Other physical states are available upon request.
