Heat Treatment of Aluminum Alloy Raw Materials
|Publication Date:||1 April 2016|
This specification covers requirements and recommendations for the heat treatment of wrought aluminum alloy raw materials (see 8.2.1) by producers. It supersedes AMS-H-6088 and replaces MIL-H-6088.
Aluminum alloy tempers are described in SAE AS1990 and ANSI H35.1.
This specification may be used for alloys other than those specified herein providing temperatures, times, and quenchant are specified.
For those material specifications that specify proprietary heat treat and/or aging practices, all other requirements of AMS2772 apply.
Other Heat Treatment
Parts (See 8.2.2)
Made from wrought raw material shall be heat treated in accordance with AMS2770.
Castings and Parts Made from Castings
Are not covered by this specification; heat treatment of aluminum castings and parts made from such castings is covered by AMS2771.
Warehouses, distributors etc. shall conform to 3.8.
