Titanium Alloy Bars, Forgings and Forging Stock 3Al - 8V - 6Cr - 4Mo - 4Zr Solution Heat Treated
|Publication Date:||1 January 2019|
This specification covers a titanium alloy in the form of bars up through 4.000 inches (101.60 mm) in nominal diameter or least distance between parallel sides, inclusive, forgings of thickness up through 4.000 inches (101.60 mm), inclusive, and stock for forging of any size (see 8.6).
This material has been used typically for parts, including springs, fabricated in the solution heat treated condition and subsequently precipitation heat treated, requiring higher tensile strength than is available in alpha-beta alloys, and corrosion resistance, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Certain processing procedures and service conditions may cause these products to become subject to stresscorrosion cracking; ARP982 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
