Aluminum Bar – Flat ASTM B/BM Bar | TW Metals

This specification covers aluminum-alloy extruded bar, rod, tube, pipe, Schedules 40 and 80structural profiles, and profiles in selected tempers for use as electric conductors. No data, although the alloy is considered forgeable.

A stress relief anneal after cold working may be done at F with air cooling. See “Annealing” and “Aging”. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Shear strength values are: T6 – 22 ksi. Filler rod of the same alloy should be used. T61 – 17 ksi. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Distributors will offer small quantity buys while mills will generally only sell large quantities, with delivery times anywhere from 10 to 50 weeks depending on size and form required This material is stocked primarily in Bar Products by 7 distributors but is also available to a lesser extent in Tubular Products.

T6 F for 20 hours and air cool. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Hot working generally is not required because the alloy has very good cold working characteristics. Use b3317 an oil base lubricant during machining operations is recommended. T63 – 21 ksi. It is hardened strengthened by heat treatment.

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. Hardens due to cold working or aging heat treatment — see “Aging”.

Tensile properties of the specimens such as tensile and yield strengths and bending shall be determined by tension test and bending test, respectively. Asym or tube may be produced through porthole or bridge type dies.

When welded in the heat treated condition the subsequent parts will be lower in strength because of weld heat input.

ASTM B317 Grade 6101 T6

T63 F for 19 hours and air cool. Welding by all of the standard processes may be done, including gas torch welding.

See also Cold Working. This is a high electrical conductivity aluminum alloy also possessing good mechanical strength properties.

Machinability by conventional means is good. Either carbide or high speed tool steel tooling may be used. The AL alloy does respond to heat treatment which is accomplished by annealing and relatively low temperature aging. Electrical bus bar conductor applications for use in enclosed bus electrical installations.


T61 F for 6 hours and air cool. Aging is done at different temperatures and times, depending upon the finished temper desired as follows: Modulus of Elasticity Tension. Annealing is done at F for 3 hours at temperature, followed by controlled cooling at a rate of 50 F per hour down to F, then air cool. The bars, rods, tubes, pipes, structural profiles and profiles shall be produced by hot extrusion or by similar methods.

Electrical resistivity and conductivity shall be determined. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore each system shall be used independently of the other. Easily cold worked, or cold formed in either the annealed or aged conditions. The preferred method of welding is by means of inert gas arc welding for best results. Type A material, last covered in the issue of this specification, is no longer available; therefore, requirements for cold-finished rectangular bar have been deleted.

Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
