This specification covers the requirements for heat treated aluminum alloy die forgings, hand forgings, and ring forgings, produced under additional mechanical property control to ensure known mechanical properties for parts used in aerospace critical applications. This specification also covers the requirements for forgings furnished in the F or 01 conditions which will ultimately be used in the heat treated condition.
This specification covers established metric manufacturing tolerances applicable to aluminum alloy rolled, drawn, or cold finished bar, rod, wire, and forging stock ordered to metric dimensions. These tolerances apply to all conditions, unless otherwise noted.
This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of rolled or cold-finished bars, rods, and wire, of flash welded rings, and of stock for flash welded rings. These products have been used typically for parts requiring moderate strength, especially where such parts require brazing or welding during fabrication, but usage is not limited to such applications.
