**What is the difference between aluminum 6061 and 6063?**

What Are 6061 & 6063 Aluminum Alloyed With? 6061 and 6063 both share the same alloying elements. 6061 aluminum can have up to double the iron and typically has substantially more silicon, copper, and chromium than 6063 aluminum. In general, you’ll find that 6061 has more of each alloying element than 6063.

**How can you tell the difference between 6061 and 6063 aluminum?**

6061 aluminum can have up to double the iron and typically has substantially more silicon, copper, and chromium than 6063 aluminum. In general, you’ll find that 6061 has more of each alloying element than 6063. See the table below for the percentage of alloying elements in each common alloy.

### Is 6061 or 6063 stronger?

For example, in comparing aluminum alloy 6061 t6 vs 6063 t6, we know that 6061 t6 has an ultimate tensile strength of at least 42,000 psi and yield strength of at least 35,000 psi. This is compared to the 6063 t6 ultimate tensile strength of at least 28,000 psi and yield strength of 23,000 psi.
