Aluminum Alloy, Rolled or Forged Rings 1.0Mg - 0.60Si - 0.28Cu - 0.20Cr (6061-T651, 6061-T652) Solution Heat Treated, Mechanically Stress Relieved, and Precipitation Heat Treated
|Publication Date:||1 July 2008|
This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of rolled or forged rings.
These rings have been used typically for structural applications requiring material with moderate strength and excellent resistance to stress-corrosion cracking and where good stability is required during machining, but usage is not limited to such applications. Alloy is further characterized by excellent fusion weldability.
Rings covered by this specification are classified by type of mechanical stress relief as follows:
Type 1 Stress relieved by stretching (6061T651)
Type 2 Stress relieved by compression (6061T652)
Either type may be supplied, unless a specific type is ordered.
