Product Description

Aluminum 6061 is one of the most widely used alloys in the 6000 series. This standard structural alloy, one of the most versatile of the heat-treatable alloys, is popular for medium to high strength requirements and has good toughness characteristics. Alloy 6061 has excellent corrosion resistance to atmospheric conditions and good corrosion resistance to seawater. This alloy also offers good finishing characteristics and responds well to anodizing; however, where cosmetic appearance is critical, consider the use of alloy 6063. For screw machine applications, alloy 6061 has adequate machinability characteristics in the heat-treated -T6/-T6511 condition. Chips from machining (particularly turning and drilling) can be difficult to break in the -T6/-T6511 temper condition. Chip breakers are recommended, and special machining techniques (i.e. peck drilling) can improve chip formation.

The aluminum was great and exactly what I wanted at a great price. Amazon's customer service was pretty terrible though. I placed an order for two 1" bars on the 3rd of the month. I realized later that I needed 1 1/4" bar instead. So I tried to cancel the order through Amazon online on the 7th (terribly slow, it still hadn't shipped) and it wouldn't let me. Not wanting to delay my project, I placed a separate order for the 1 1/4" bar on the 7th. On the 8th, I tried calling Amazon again to cancel. The customer service rep LIED to me and said he would wait until the shipment was packaged and then have it pulled from the carrier, then issue me a refund. They did not pull/cancel the order. Instead, they COMBINED both orders into one package and shipped them to me the same day. They couldn't cancel the shipment but they could coordinate the combined shipping from orders placed 4 days apart? And then ship the combined packages? Shady business Amazon. My next order will go somewhere else.
