In this paper, mechanical properties of recycled 6061 aluminum alloy by solid state recycling has been compared with those as-received extrusion extrudability. Aluminum AA6061 chip metals were extruded by hot extrusion and the effect of extrusion parameters on the mechanical properties was investigated. The objective of the present study is to analyze the mechanical and structural features of 6061Aluminium after plastic consolidation by hot extrusion with differences of preheat temperature and preheat time whereby ram speed was kept constant. The findings of the study highlighted the potential of combining the process extrusion parameter as an efficient processing route for production of high-performance extruded billet quality. Tensile test results showed that the material extruded using temperature 550°C exhibit higher mechanical properties compared with temperature of 400°C. it has revealed that the ultimate tensile strength (UTS) and elongation (ETF) of fine chips are more extrudated exhibit properties of the as-received billet.
