The most versatile of the heat treatable aluminum alloys, good qualities of aluminum, and it offers a wide range of mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. It can be fabricated by the most commonly used techniques.
It is available in the clad form ("Alclad") with a thin surface layer of high purity aluminum to improve both appearance and corrosion resistance.
It is alloyed with 1.0% magnesium and .6% silicon. Tensils strength range from 20,200 to 42,000 psi. It has good formability, weldability and corrosion resistance. Used for engineering and structural applications, boats, furniture, transportation equipment, etc.
