Titanium Alloy, Forgings 6AI - 4V Alpha-Beta or Beta Processed, Annealed
|Publication Date:||1 December 2019|
This specification covers a titanium alloy in the form of forgings, 6.000 inches (152.40 mm) and under in cross-sectional thickness and forging stock of any size.
These forgings have been used typically for parts that do not require heat treatment but require high mechanical properties in the annealed condition and for which processing above the beta transus is permissible, but usage is not limited to such applications. This alloy exhibits high strength-to-weight ratios up to 750 °F (399 °C).
Certain processing procedures and service conditions may cause these products to become subject to stresscorrosion cracking; ARP982 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
