6TWO1 Lug nuts a closer look
Hey! i hope you're having a great weekend so far.I have popped into the shop today as I wanted to write a quick blog post giving you a closer look at our 6TWO1 7075-T6 Alli lug nuts.A lot of people when they come to buying lug nuts ask me for Steel, they are completely set on steel as the material they want to use. I do stock at the shop, some steel lug nuts, but I found without the right protection and care these can rust, especially over our harsh British winters.On our new line, I wanted to change it up and use a material I knew would not rust, would be very strong and also has been proven within its field. I looked at all of the manufactures of the highest quality lug nuts on the market and found across the board Alli 7075-T6 was the most commonly used by the Goliath's of the industry.But please do not get 7075-T6 confused with the much weaker 6061. Which is probably what those you've just ordered off of Ebay for £27 are made of, which does not hold any of the properties that 7076-t6 does..
T6 temper 7075 has an ultimate tensile strength of 74,000–78,000 psi (510–572 MPa) and yield strength of at least 63,000–69,000 psi (434–503 MPa). It has a failure elongation of 5–11%.The T6 temper is usually achieved by homogenizing the cast 7075 at 450 °C for several hours, quenching, and then aging at 120 °C for 24 hours. This yields the peak strength of the 7075 alloy. The strength is derived mainly from finely dispersed eta and eta' precipitates both within grains and along grain boundaries."
I wanted to show you some detailed photos of our lug nut line as I am truly so proud of these products.Gold Chrome : £89.99I found most "gold lug nuts" are more of a matte off orange, so I wanted to bring a real gold to the market..
