Aluminum Alloy, Sheet and Plate, Alclad 4.4Cu - 1.5Mg - 0.60Mn (2024 -T361 Sheet/Plate with 1½% Alclad) Solution Heat Treated, 6% Cold Worked and Naturally Aged
|Publication Date:||1 January 2018|
This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of alclad sheet and plate supplied in the -T361 temper.
Requirements for thin gage sheet (0.008 to 0.187 inch) in accordance with AMS4194 are hereby superseded by AMS4466. AMS-QQ-A-250/5 and AMS4466 have the same requirements for alclad thickness and tensile properties for material less than 0.187 inch in thickness. 1.2.1 AMS4194 covers alclad material for sheet greater than 0.187 inch, and plate. The cladding thickness is minimized to provide a commensurate increase in tensile properties for this alclad reduction. Use of this product is not recommended without proper evaluation of corrosion resistance.
These products have been used typically for high strength parts requiring higher yield strength than is afforded by naturally aged tempers of this alloy and maximum corrosion resistance and whose fabrication does not involve welding, but usage is not limited to such applications.
