This specification covers the heat treatment of titanium and titanium alloy mill products (raw material), including wrought and cast products, by material producers. This specification also covers furnace equipment requirements, test procedures, and general information for heat treating procedures, heat treating temperatures, and material test procedures for the heat treatment of titanium and titanium alloys. It also describes procedures that, when followed, have produced the desired properties within the limitations of the respective alloys.
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) establishes requirements applicable to metal stock that is ordered and produced in accordance with an Aerospace Material Specification (AMS). Topics include producer requirements, distributor requirements, size and grain orientation nomenclature, and purchaser ordering information to distributors. Requirements of this document have been developed to address titanium and titanium alloys.
