Aluminum Alloy, Sheet and Plate 4.4Cu - 1.5Mg - 0.60Mn (2024; -T3 Flat Sheet, -T351 Plate) Solution Heat Treated
|Publication Date:||1 August 2020|
This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of sheet and plate from 0.008 to 4.000 inches (0.20 to 101.60 mm) in thickness, inclusive (see 8.5).
These products have been used typically for formed structural parts of good strength. Plate is also suitable for structural machined parts where warpage, during machining, due to residual stresses must be minimized, 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.
