AC600 Aluminium

AC600 Aluminium

Anyone out there able to furnish me with the ultimate tensile and shear stress of AC600 aluminium used in modern car bodies?
Thanks in anticipation.

RE: AC600 Aluminium

For exact values, you will need to contact Novelis, the provider of Anticorodal®-600 PX (AC-600). The typical treatment is to form the sheet in the T4 condition and then allow it to artificially age during a paint bake operation to a T6 or T8 condition. Typical values for tensile yield strength is ~ 200 MPa after aging, tensile ultimate strength ~ 240 MPa, and elongation of 10-12%. Shear ultimate strength is ~ 60% of tensile ultimate.
