Aluminum alloy 6005/A is a medium strength, heat treatable alloy with excellent corrosion resistance. Alloy 6005 has properties between those of alloys 6061 and 6082and can sometimes be used interchangeably with these alloys, but 6005 has better extrusion characteristics and a better mill surface finish. It is difficult to produce thin-wall or complicated extrusions in 6005, but it is still more extrudable than 6082. 6005A tube has very good bending properties. 6005 and 6005A typically are foundin applications like: tubing for furniture, railway and bus profile structures, pylons, platforms and pipelines, portable ladders and sections where greater strength is needed than given by 6060 and 6063. T5 is Cooled from an elevated temperature and artificially aged whereas T61 is Solution heat-treated and artificially aged.
