Aluminium alloy 6082 is a medium strength alloy with excellent corrosion resistance. It has the highest strength of the 6000 series alloys. Alloy 6082 is known as a structural alloy. In plate form, 6082 is the alloy most commonly used for machining. As a relatively new alloy, the higher strength of 6082 has seen it replace 6061 in many applications. 

Aluminium alloy 6082, BS L113  also corresponds to the following standard designations and specifications but may not be a direct equivalent:


Alloy 6082
DIN 3.2315
EN AW-6082
UNS A96082


BS L113, 6082 is supplied in a wide range of tempers:


  • O - Soft
  • T6 - Solution heat treated and artificially aged
  • T4 - Solution heat treated and naturaly aged to a substantially stable condition
