Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 15 March 2009
Status: inactive
Page Count: 14
ICS Code (Heat treatment): 25.200
ICS Code (Aluminium products): 77.150.10
scope:

1.1 This practice is intended for use in the heat treatment of wrought aluminum alloys for general purpose applications.

1.1.1 The heat treatment of wrought aluminum alloys used in specific aerospace applications is covered in AMS 2772.

1.1.2 Heat treatment of aluminum alloy castings for general purpose applications is covered in Practice B 917/B 917M.

1.2 Times and temperatures appearing in the heat-treatment tables are typical for various forms, sizes, and manufacturing methods and may not provide the optimum heat treatment for a specific item.

1.3 Some alloys in the 6xxx series may achieve the T4 temper by quenching from within the solution temperature range during or immediately following a hot working process, such as upon emerging from an extrusion die. Such alternatives to furnace heating and immersion quenching are indicated in , by Footnote L, for heat treatment of wrought aluminum alloys. However, this practice does not cover the requirements for a controlled press heat treatment. (Refer to Practice B 807 for press heat treatment of aluminum alloys.)

1.4 This practice is in inch-pound units.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
