6061 Aluminum Plate. 6061 Aluminum Plate is made of one of the most versatile of all of the aluminum alloys. 6061 Aluminum Plate is the alloy of choice for all-purpose applications. 6061 Aluminum Plate is an aluminum-silicon-magnesium alloy, strengthened by precipitation hardening.
The difference between aluminum plate and aluminum sheet is thickness. To make aluminum sheet, aluminum plate is rolled to become longer and thinner. Aluminum plate stock is used in situations where more heavy-duty strength requirements are present. Aluminum plate can be found in military, aerospace, and manufacturing industries.

6061-T6 Aluminum Sheet - (ASTM B209, QQ-A-250/11) Offers a combination of increased strength, corrosion resistance, and machinability making it the most widely used aluminum grade. 6061 Aluminum Sheet is heat treatable, resists cracking due to stress, is easy to weld and machine, but limited on formability. 6061 Aluminum Sheet is ideal for ...
Aluminum plate comes in 6061-T6 and 3003-H14 alloys. 6061 aluminum plate is a harder, more machinable aluminum. It is the workhorse of heat-treat alloys. Uses include the production of sailboats, canoes, truck and bus bodies, scaffolding, transmission towers, mine skips, furniture, chemical and marine equipment, and hardware.
Aluminum sheet. How to calculate the weight. The weight of sheet is easily calculated. Simply multiply the appropriate alloy density (see chart below) by the length, width, and thickness of the required part (see worked example below and note that we have used the density of alloy 2014 as the basis for our calculations).

When working with sheet metal, it is common for the term “gauge” to be used. Someone unfamiliar with the gauge system may not understand what is meant by 18 gauge steel, for example. To help, this blog will explain the gauge system and features a sheet metal gauge chart. How are sheet metal gauges used?
