Duralumin hexagon

Duralumin hexagon


Duralumin hexagon is made from aluminium with the addition of copper, manganese, plus small amounts of magnesium. This alloy has a lightness of aluminium, but at the same time, sufficient hardness and ductility. To alloy have acquired the necessary physical and technical properties, it is heated to 500 — 600 degrees, and then subjected to rapid cooling. Then leave for a few days at room temperature, whereby the alloy is significantly hardened. It is made from a number of fasteners.

Hexagon usually made from stamps D1, D18, D16, D19, B65, VAD. He is a solid profile in cross section a polygon with six edges, hence its name. It is manufactured by deformation (cold pressing) or by hot rolling. The type of treatment he may be soft — made with the help of annealing; hardened and artificially aged to give added strength. Accuracy produce normal, enhanced, or high precision. The workmanship of this product is regulated by GOST 21488−97. On the surface of the hexagon should not life no potholes, cracks, and other damage.

Hexagon has, along with ease, a sufficient strength. It is cheap, widely used for fasteners of different structures. If it is further coated with a thin layer of metal or occiderit, it increases its resistance to corrosion. Thanks to plasticity, it is easy to handle. It is well sealed with other materials spot welded. All these qualities make the hexagon are very popular in almost all spheres of industry and production.


Mechanical engineering, aerospace industry, shipbuilding, construction, manufacturing various metal structures. The hexagon is used also in the design of small architectural forms, furniture industry and other sectors of the economy.
