Aluminum Alloy Bars, Rods, and Wire, Rolled or Cold Finished 5.6Zn - 2.5Mg - 1.6Cu - 0.23Cr (7075-F) As Fabricated, or when specified, Annealed (7075-O)
|Publication Date:||1 August 2019|
This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of bars, rods, and wire, in the sizes shown in 3.3.3, in the "as fabricated (F) temper" (see 8.5). When specified, product shall be supplied in the annealed (O) condition.
These products have been typically used for parts requiring forming and as stock for flash welded rings which are to be subsequently solution and precipitation 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 solution and precipitation heat treatment; ARP823 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
