Aluminum Alloy, Alclad Sheet 3.8Cu - 1.0Mg - 0.30Mn - 0.60Zn (Alclad 2056-T3) Solution Heat Treated and Cold Worked
|Publication Date:||1 April 2016|
This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of sheet 0.063 to 0.236 inch (1.60 to 6.00 mm), incl, in thickness, clad on both sides (see 8.4).
These products have been used typically for formed structural aircraft parts requiring improved resistance to fatigue crack growth and high toughness with strength similar to Alclad 2024-T3, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Certain design and processing procedures may cause these products to become susceptible to stress-corrosion cracking; ARP823 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
