The 6061 aluminum sheet with T6 temper has an unpolished (mill) surface, meets American Society for Testing and Materials International ASTM B209 standards, and has a standard tolerance. The 6061 aluminum alloy is a general-purpose material that combines good corrosion resistance, strength, machinability, and weldability. It resists stress corrosion cracking and is heat treatable. The aluminum has a T6 temper, meaning it has been heat treated for increased strength.
Aluminum and aluminum alloys are lightweight compared to steel, brass, and copper, and have high strength-to-weight ratios. They offer good corrosion resistance and conductivity of heat and electricity, as well as moderate formability and machinability. Aluminum alloys include elements that modify the aluminum to achieve specific properties such as better weldability or greater strength. All series of aluminum alloys are nonmagnetic. Aluminum alloys have temper designations, indicating that the material has undergone a process to achieve certain properties of strength and hardness.
Tensile strength, used to indicate the material’s overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Corrosion resistance describes the material's ability to prevent deterioration caused by atmosphere, moisture, or other medium. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Toughness describes the material's ability to absorb energy before breaking, while hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Formability indicates how easily the material can be permanently shaped. Machinability describes how easily it can be cut, shaped, finished, or otherwise machined, while weldability characterizes the ability to be welded.

this size makes a great laptop tabletop/ bedtop cooler for laptops that vent from bottom. It also serves other purposes.
It arrived clean and not bent so can't complain!
I initially bought this sheet of aluminum to be used in a Playstation 3 mod project that I embarked on.
I was replacing the stock heatsink and fan setup and utilizing standard PC CPU heatsinks. The issue with it was that I needed a way to attach the heatsinks to the motherboard (since it is a proprietary board layout) and also that the CPU and GPU were different heights even though they were right next to each other.
I bought this sheet of aluminum to cut mounting plates that would attach to the PC heatsinks, and also to the motherboard. This meant that it had to be strong enough to hold, but also conductive enough to transfer heat through to the main heatsink. This sheet met my standards perfectly.
My only complaint would be that the sheet had black printing across it, indicating the product type. It makes sense, but seeing as I needed the aluminum bare and couldn't sand the surface (or it would defeat my purposes). It wasn't really an issue because there was plenty of area to cut out that was not printed, but it was not something I expected.
