Aluminum Alloy Bars, Rods, and Wire, Rolled, Drawn, or Cold Finished 4.5Cu - 0.85Si - 0.80Mn - 0.50Mg (2014-T6, -T651) Solution and Precipitation Heat Treated
|Publication Date:||1 January 2017|
This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of bars, rods, and wire.
This specification covers rounds 8 inches (203 mm) and under in specified diameter; square, hexagonal, and octagonal bars 4 inches (102 mm) and under across flats; and rectangular bar with a nominal thickness of 4 inches (102 mm) and under and a maximum cross-sectional area of 36 in2 (232 cm2).
These products have been used typically for parts requiring high strength where limited formability is acceptable but usage is not limited to such applications.
Certain design and processing procedures may cause these products to become susceptible to stress-corrosion cracking; ARP823 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
