Aluminum Alloy, Extrusions 1.0Mg - 0.60Si - 0.30Cu - 0.20Cr (6061-T6511) Solution Heat Treated, Stress Relieved by Stretching, Straightened, and Precipitation Heat Treated
This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of extruded bars, rods, wire, profiles, and tubing.<p>These extrusions have been used typically for parts requiring moderate strength and where distortion during machining must be minimized, but usage is not limited to such applications.
AMS4173F was revised to add provisions for billet types for tubing (1.1.1), for T6510 temper material (3.2.2), and for press solution heat treatment (3.2.3), and revises Sampling and Testing (4.3.1) and Reports (4.4).
