What Grades of Aluminum For Turned Parts Common USed?

The Grades Of Auminum For Turned Parts & It’s Surface Finish Treatments.

This page will provide an overview on the grades of aluminum for turned parts,and the types of finish treatments that are commonly used for aluminum turned parts.

We will look at the reasons for choosing various grades of aluminum as well as the different types of finishing treatments that can be applied to aluminum components such as anodizing, powder coating, and plating.

We will also discuss the benefits of using these types of finishes when manufacturing turned parts from aluminum. Finally, we will provide information on a few of the most popular grades of aluminum for machining and how they should be treated for proper use.

The Characteristics of aluminum for Turned Parts


Grades Characteristics Advantages Shortcomings Industries
6061-T6 Medium strength aluminum alloy with excellent corrosion resistance and weldability High tensile strength, high corrosion resistance, high fatigue strength Not as strong as 7075-T6 and not heat treatable Aerospace, automotive, medical, defense, consumer products, and marine applications.
6063-T6 High strength aluminum alloy with excellent corrosion resistance and low thermal expansion High tensile strength, excellent machinability and weldability, high corrosion resistance Not as strong as 6061-T6 and not heat treatable Window and door frames, sheet metal, interior and exterior decoration, automotive frames.
7075-T6 High strength aluminium alloy with excellent corrosion resistance and high temperature resistance High tensile strength, excellent corrosion resistance, high fatigue strength, heat treatable Difficult to machine and weld Aerospace, defense, automotive, medical, and marine applications.

The Common Finish Treatments For Aluminum Turned Parts

Finish Treatments Characteristics Advantages Disadvantages Functions
Anodizing Strong corrosion resistance and good looking surface Aesthetic surface finish,Scratch-resistant,Good protection against the elements Costly process,Not suitable for high temperature applications Protects aluminum from environmental damage
Sandblasting Smooth finish with an even tone Produces a uniform coating,Relatively low cost and easy to use High dust generation,Time consuming on larger parts Manufacture products with a unique matte finish
Powder Coating High-gloss finish Thick coating that is durable,Able to produce complex shapes Timing consuming and more expensive than other finishes,Not suitable for complex shapes Protect surfaces from corrosion and abrasion
Electrophoresis Glossy and durable finish Corrosion and heat resistant,Thin coating that won’t affect dimensions Time consuming, More cost than painting Protects aluminum surfaces form dirt and humidity
Painting A unique look that helps to mask the appearance of a turned part Low cost and easy-to-apply,Can give parts a unique look The coating is thin and may not last as long as some other finishes Improve appearance of parts
