This material standard covers forgings made of Aluminum alloys used in automotive and allied industries. This specification specifies chemical composition and material properties based on test coupons excised from forged components.
The materials are aluminum alloys of Aluminum Association (AA) 6000 series and some vendor specific alloys similar to 6000 series.
Aluminum alloy forging applications are many in most vehicle systems. Major applications are chassis components such as control arms, links, knuckles, brackets, yokes, etc.
