Aluminium 6026T6 has been updated to allow it to be used in applications that are impacted by new European environmental legislation regarding maximum allowable lead (Pb) content in finished components. This legislation particularly affects automotive and electrical applications and the chemical composition has been changed accordingly. Aluminium 6026T6 finds many applications as a replacement for AW 6262 (which has an allowable lead (Pb) content that makes it incompatible with specific elements of the new European environmental legislation).
6026T6 is especially suited to turned parts manufacture where speed and aesthetic component finish have equal importance. 6026T6 is especially recommended for such components that have anodising or superior corrosion resistance is an additional requirement.
