Heat Treatment of Wrought Aluminum Alloy Parts
|Publication Date:||1 August 2020|
This specification specifies the engineering requirements for heat treatment, by part fabricators (users) or their vendors or subcontractors, of parts (see 8.6.1). It also covers heat treatment by warehouses or distributors converting raw material from one temper to another temper (see 1.3 and 8.5). It covers the following aluminum alloys:
1100, 2004, 2014, 2017, 2024, 2098, 2117, 2124, 2195, 2219, 2224, 3003, 5052, 6013, 6061, 6063, 6066, 6951, 7049, 7050, 7075, 7149, 7178, 7249, and 7475.
This specification may be used for heat treatment of parts made from other alloys provided the temperatures, temperature uniformity tolerances, times, and quenchants are specified or approved by the cognizant engineering organization (see 8.6.7).
Castings and parts made from castings shall be heat treated in accordance with AMS2771.
When a warehouse, distributor, or similar organization converts raw material to a different temper, it shall be heat treated and tested to the requirements of this specification. The marking, testing, and reporting requirements shall also be in accordance with AMS2772 and the raw material specification.
