M82 Aluminium Plate (6082)

M82 aluminium represents a precision plate product produced in 6082 T651 aluminium.

The heat-treatable alloy affords a broad range of attractive performance characteristics compared to the alloy it derives from (standard 6082). The alloy offers a combination of excellent machinability and stability.


Typical commercial applications include:

  • Manufactured to tight tolerances
  • Outstanding machinability
  • Highly cost-effective
  • Good corrosion resistance

M82 is continuously machinable from one batch to another without costly setup changes. The wastage from component manufacture is considerably less, too, because the alloy is manufactured to much tighter tolerances. The end product is consistent, accurate and highly cost-effective, resulting in an attractive product for engineering machine shops.

Surface Finish

We supply M82 aluminium plates with a bright, linished finish on both sides, which results in an impressive finish. The alloy is also suitable for anodising. The impressive flatness characteristics of M82 aluminium alloy are achieved by stretching operations and levelling.


To add further value, we offer our customer in-house processing services where we cut your aluminium plates to your size requirements using dedicated CNC saws. We also keep stock of pre-cut planks which may reduce the number of cutting operations you require.
