Titanium Alloy Bars, Forgings and Forging Stock 6.0Al - 4.0V Solution Heat Treated and Aged
|Publication Date:||1 August 2018|
This specification covers a titanium alloy in the form of round, hexagon and square bars and forgings up through 3.000 inches (76.20 mm) inclusive, rectangular bar and forgings of thickness up through 4.000 inches (101.60 mm) inclusive, and forging stock of any size (see 8.7).
These products have been used typically for parts that are machined after solution heat treatment and aging and are suitable for parts requiring high strength-to-weight ratios up to moderately elevated temperatures, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Certain processing procedures and service conditions may cause these products to become subject to stresscorrosion cracking; ARP982 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
