For sale are 4 sheets of Alcoa 6013-T4 aluminum measuring 48" wide, 72" long, and 0.032" thick .. surplus from another project.
This is a hard-to-find, premium grade weldable material.
It is more formable in the -T4 temper.
After forming and/or welding, you can artificially age it up to -T6 temper in an oven.. ~350 F.
6013-T6 is significantly higher in yield & ultimate strength than 6061-T6 .. it's comparable in strength to 2024-T3, yet tougher and more corrosion resistant.
See manufacturer's spec sheet & pictures below.
Will sell all 4 sheets for $400.
Buyer pays shipping, or can pick up in Salt Lake City area.

6013 is good stuff. It's what the Questair Venture is made of, for example. If it weren't for price, I think we'd see a big move from 6061-T6 to 6013-T6 for many kits.
