Aluminum Alloy, Rolled, Drawn or Cold Finished Bar, Rod, and Wire 4.0Cu - 0.70Mn - 0.60Mg - 0.50Si (2017; -O or when ordered -F)
|Publication Date:||1 August 2018|
This specification covers the specific requirements for 2017 aluminum alloy bar, rod and wire produced by rolling, drawing or cold finishing supplied in the annealed (O temper) condition (see 8.4). When specified, product shall be supplied in the "as fabricated" (F) temper.
These products have been used typically for formed structural parts which will be subsequently heat treated, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Certain design and processing procedures may cause these products to become susceptible to stress-corrosion cracking after heat treatment; ARP823 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
