Overview

6082 aluminium alloy is an alloy in the wrought aluminium-magnesium-silicon. It is one of the more popular alloys in its series, although it is not strongly featured in ASTM standards. It is typically formed by extrusion and rolling, but as a wrought alloy it is not used in casting. It can also be forged and clad, but that is not common practice with this alloy. It cannot be work hardened but is commonly heat treated to produce tempers with a higher strength but lower ductility.
