Aluminum Alloy, Extruded Profiles (2196-T8511) 2.9Cu - 1.7Li - 0.4Mg - 0.4Ag - 0.10Zr Solution Heat Treated, Stress Relieved by Stretching and Artificially Aged
|Publication Date:||1 May 2017|
This specification covers an aluminum-lithium alloy in the form of extruded profiles 0.040 to 1.000 inch, incl in thickness.
These extrusions have been used typically for machined parts requiring dimensional stability during machining processes, and high strength, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Certain processing procedures may cause this product to become susceptible to stress-corrosion cracking; ARP823 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
