Aluminum Alloy, Extrusions 1.0Mg - 0.60Si - 0.30Cu - 0.20Cr (6061-T6511 or T6510) Solution Heat Treated, Stress Relieved by Stretching, Straightened, and Precipitation Heat Treated

This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of extruded bars, rods, wire, profiles, and tubing.
Tubing shall be additionally classified as follows:
Type I - Seamless tubing extruded from hollow billets using die and mandrel
Type II - Tubing extruded from solid billets using porthole or spider die or similar tooling
When no Type is specified, Type I shall apply.
These extrusions have been used typically for parts requiring moderate strength and where distortion during machining must be minimized, but usage is not limited to such applications.
