Aluminum Alloy, Forgings and Rolled or Forged Rings (6061-T6) Solution and Precipitation Heat Treated
|Publication Date:||1 February 2019|
This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of die forgings not over 4 inches (102 mm) in nominal thickness at time of heat treatment , hand forgings with as-forged thickness not exceeding 8 inches (203 mm) and the cross-sectional area not greater than 256 in2, forged or rolled rings 3.5 inches (89 mm) and under in nominal thickness at time of heat treatment and having an OD-to-wall thickness ratio of 10:1 or greater, and stock of any size for forgings and rings (see 8.6).
These products have been used typically for complex, shaped parts requiring moderate strength and good forgeability of the material, but usage is not limited to such applications. Corrosion resistance of this alloy is superior to that of alloys having copper as the principal alloying element.
