Mingtai Aluminum explains for you the difference between 2A12 aluminum plate and 6061 aluminum plate.

2A12 aluminum plate and 6061 aluminum plate are both heat treatable aluminum alloys. The finished products of the two are difficult to distinguish in appearance, but the price is very different. The average price difference is about 10,000 yuan per ton. Why? How do you distinguish between these two aluminum alloy products? Here, We will answer for you.

First, the hardness of 2A12 aluminum plate and 6061 aluminum plate is huge. The hardness of 6061 aluminum alloy after heat treatment is about 90HB, while the hardness of 2A12 aluminum plate can reach 120HB. 2A12 is ultra-high-strength aluminum alloy. It is also a high-end product in aluminum plate. At present, there are few manufacturers producing it in China. For example, there are state-owned enterprises: southwest aluminum, east light and so on. While Mingtai Aluminum is one of the few aluminum plate manufacturers in private aluminum processing enterprises that can produce 2A12. For the processing technology of 6061 aluminum plate is relatively low, almost all manufacturers can produce it.

Second, the density is different. The density of the 6061 aluminum plate is 2.7, while the 2A12 has a higher copper content and a density around 2.78-2.79, and the product density can be calculated by weight. Calculation formula: thickness * density * length * width = weight

Third, the use is different. 2A12 aluminum plate is mainly used in high-end products, such as: military, aerospace, high-precision molds, etc., while 6061 aluminum alloy is relatively widely used.We take the 6061 aluminum plate of Mingtai Aluminum as an example, the product is in the car wheel hub, mobile phone case, mobile phone card slots, subway cars and other aspects of the car have been widely used.
