Properties of aluminum 6005 T5
In previous post Aluminum alloys https://www.solaracks.com/aluminum-alloys/ we have mentioned most common aluminum in solar mounting material is 6005. 6005-T5 aluminum is 6005 aluminum in the T5 temper. To achieve this temper, the metal is artificially aged until it meets standard mechanical property requirements. It has the lowest ductility compared to the other variants of 6005 aluminum.
The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare 6005-T5 aluminum to: 6000-series alloys (top), all aluminum alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it’s 50% of the highest, and so on.
