Aluminum Alloy Alclad 7178, Plate and Sheet
This specification covers the specific requirements for 7178 aluminum alloy alclad plate and sheet; the general requirements are covered in AMS-QQ-A-250. The plate and sheet covered by this specification shall be an integral composite product consisting of a heat-treatable aluminum alloy (7178) core with thin layers of an aluminum alloy (7072) anodic to the core and of approximately equal thickness bonded to both surfaces.
AMS-QQ-A-250/15C has been designated stabilized because alloy 7178 is not recommended for new designs.
