Aluminum Exposed To Seawater

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm desiging a small gate (i.e., 5'x5') that will be exposed to seawater.

Is 6061-T6 a valid temper/alloy for a structure that will be subjected to this corrosive condition during it's design life? Is there another temper/alloy that's more appropriate?

TIA,
