General Usage and Applications
Specification covers annealed and three heat-treated
tempers used mostly in O-annealed and T-6. Has
good workability. The 6061-T6 is used in
hydraulic/pneumatic 3000-psi systems.
Low-pressure applications such as fuel lines.
Unsatisfactory for high-pressure hydraulic lines. Has
Unsatisfactory for welding, brazing or exposure to
temperatures higher than 800°F. Used in high-pressure
Hydraulic/mechanical applications. Has high resistance
to corrosion and high temperatures up to 1500°F.
Suitable for applications requiring welding/brazing.
Type II intended for high-pressure hydraulic
applications, using brazed sleeve joints.
Used in high-pressure hydraulic/pneumatic systems.
Unsuitable for welding/brazing applications or
exposure to temperatures above 800°F.
Used in high-pressure hydraulic/pneumatic systems
assembled with brazed sleeve joints. Suitable for use in
moderately corrosive or oxidizing environments,
temperatures to 1200°F. Weldable.
Used for aircraft structural parts or similar applications
not requiring sharp bends or flaring. Unsatisfactory for
welding other than resistance weld.
Aircraft hydraulic quality, used in high-pressure
hydraulic/pneumatic systems. Most often used in these
systems requiring brazing/welding.
