aluminium melting point?

aluminium melting point?

aluminium melting point?

can anyone help me to find the data of aluminium melting point such as 6063?
thank you


RE: aluminium melting point?

Alloy      6063
Specific Weight  2.7
Modulus of Elasticity  67500
Coefficient of linear expansion 23.4.10-6
Thermal Conductivity 200
Specific Heat 898
Specific Conductivity 31.00
Specific Resistance 0.032
Melting Point 550-660

only note is to make sure what condition the material is in, ie heat treatment, although this will not affect the melting temp.

RE: aluminium melting point?

In metallurgical terms, there are two temperatures that describe the melting behavior.  The Liquidus temperature is the temperature at which the alloy is 100% liquid, which is 655 C (1211 F) for alloy 6063.  The Solidus temperature is the temperature at which the alloy is 100% solid, which is 615 C (1139 F) for alloy 6063.  In between these two temperatures, the alloy is part solid and part liquid.

You can try www.matweb.com for raw information such as this.
I think you need to register, but it's free, and they have data regarding all types of materials.

RE: aluminium melting point?

My old Alcoa Aluminum Handbook (1962) is in agreement with TVP's numbers.  Some melting ranges for common wrought Al alloys:

1100  1190-1215 F
2024   935-1180
3003  1190-1210
4032   990-1060
5005  1170-1210
5056  1055-1180
6061  1100-1205
6063  1140-1210
7075   890-1175
