Aluminum Alloy, Discontinuously Reinforced Extruded Bar, Rod, Wire and Shapes (2124A/SiC/25p (3 μm) (T1P)
|Publication Date:||1 July 2018|
This specification covers a discontinuously reinforced aluminum alloy (DRA) made by mechanical alloying 2124A aluminum powder and SiC particulate. It is produced in the form of extruded bar, rod, wire and shapes with cross section inclusive of 1 inch (25.4 mm) diameter or less.
These products have been used typically for structural parts requiring high static strength, fatigue strength and high elastic modulus but usage is not limited to such applications. Subsequent heat treatment to the T6P/T62P temper is required to increase strength to levels required for service (see 3.4 and 3.4.1).
