Tempers

Tempers

 6061: T1, T4, T6  6082: T6
 6063: T1, T5, T6 6351: T1, T5, T6
 6065: T1, T5  
   

T1: Cooled from an elevated temperature shaping process and naturally aged to a substantially stable condition. Applies to products that are not cold worked after cooling from an elevated temperature shaping process, or in which the effect of cold work in flattening or straightening may not be recognized in mechanical property limits.

T4: Solution heat-treated and naturally aged to a substantially stable condition. Applies to products that are not cold worked after solution heat-treatment, or in which the effect of cold work in flattening or straightening may not be recognized in mechanical property limits.

T5: Cooled from an elevated temperature process and then artificially aged. Applies to products that are not cold worked after cooling from an elevated temperature shaping process, or in which the effect of cold work in flattening or straightening may not be recognized in mechanical property limits.

T6: Solution heat-treated and then artificially aged. Applies to products that are not cold worked after solution heat-treatment, or in which the effect of cold work in flattening or straightening recognized in mechanical property limits.

H111 & H112: (wrought products only) Applies to products that have their strength increased by strain-hardening, with or without supplementary thermal treatments to produce some reduction in strength.
