Tafe manages to extrude profiles in the 6XXX series alloy, the main elements of which are silicon (Si) and magnesium (Mg), making the profiles more suitable for heat treatment (thermal rupture) and in this way more versatile in the final applications.The alloys produced by us are:
* EN-AW 6060 (Al MgSi0, 5) DIN 3.3206: Versatile alloy and used in moderated mechanical properties applications. Used in construction and industry profiles.
* EN-AW 6063 (Al Mg0, 7Si) DIN 3.2315: Very similar to Alloy 6060, presented with superior mechanical properties used in diversified applications in the automotive industry and in the industry in general.
* EN-AW 6082 (Al Si1MgMn) DIN 3.2315: By adding manganese to its chemical composition, it becomes the alloy with higher mechanical properties of this series. It is used in structural applications in the construction, transport industry and general
industry, as in machined parts for the automobile industry.
* EN-AW 6005 (Al MgSi0, 7) DIN 3.3210: Medium resistance alloy and used in applications where structures can be subjected to impacts or overloading.
