Below mentioned are the acceptance criteria of these materials:

Application of 6061-T6 Aluminum Alloys
When we talk about aluminum alloy, it is tough and more functional compared to the pure form of aluminum.
Highway and Road Construction
This is the reason why alloys like 6061-T6 are used in the making of sturdy and heavy-duty products, from the construction of the parts of aircraft including the wings and fuselage, to spacecraft, watercraft, boats, air coolers, bicycle frames, heat exchangers, heat-sinks, and different water pumps and tubes, such as hydraulic, water and air.
These alloys are great conductors and dissipaters of heat and can be bent into different shapes as well. The Department of Transportation requirements should be followed as they are, for your own safety and benefit. You can order any of these products from AMD Supply, a South Florida Aluminum Wholesale Company located in Florida.
