Titanium Alloy Sheet, Strip, and Plate, 6Al - 6V - 2Sn, Solution Heat Treated
This specification covers a titanium alloy in the form of sheet, strip, and plate in thicknesses up through 4.000 inches (101.60 mm).
AMS4988C results from an update of this specification that requires vacuum in the first consumable electrode melt (3.2), revises transition from sheet to plate in Tables 3 and 4, requires agreement on mechanical property values on material outside specification ranges (18.104.22.168.2 and 8.7) and ultrasonic testing of all plate 0.500 inch (12.7 mm) and over (3.6.1), adds AS6279 (3.8), and revises the report paragraph (4.4).
