Aluminum Alloy, Discontinuously Reinforced Hot Isostatically Pressed Shapes 2124A/SiC/25p (3m) (T1P)
|Publication Date:||1 December 2015|
This specification covers discontinuously reinforced aluminum alloy (DRA) metal matrix composites (MMC) made by mechanical alloying of the 2124A powder and SiC particulate, which is then consolidated by Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) into shapes less than 62 in2 (0.04 m2) cross-section (see 8.11).
HIP'ed shapes have been used typically for structural applications requiring high static strength, fatigue strength and high elastic modulus, but usage is not limited to such applications. HIP'ed shapes may also be used as input to forging and extrusion processes.
