This recommended practice provides recommendations concerning the chemical milling of aluminum, magnesium, and titanium alloys, and specialty alloys. The detailed recommendations are based on practical engineering and production experience that will enable industry to make proper use of the chemical milling process.
This specification covers procedures and requirements for peening of metal parts with portable, bonded-shot, rotary flap assemblies in accordance with AS2592. The principles of rotary flap peening are similar to conventional shot peening, except conversion of arc height values using the magnetic Almen test strip holder is required for intensity determination.
This specification covers an aluminum brazing flux in the form of powder. This flux has been used typically for brazing aluminum and aluminum alloys at 1050 °F (566 °C) and above, but usage is not limited to such applications.
This standard establishes definitions, guidelines, and requirements governing the specific material (e.g., alloy and heat treat condition) to be used for chemical process test specimens when requirements call for "the same generic class of alloy".
This specification establishes the requirements for undyed anodic coatings on aluminum alloys. This process has been used typically to increase corrosion resistance and to provide surfaces that will promote adherence of paint and other organic finishes, but usage is not limited to such applications. AMS2472 should be specified for coatings colored by dyeing. This process is not suitable for parts that contain joints or recesses in which the anodizing solution may be retained.
