Aluminum Alloy, Discontinuously Reinforced Extruded Bar, Rod, Wire and Shapes (2124A/SiC/25p (0.7 µm) (T1P)
This specification covers a discontinuously reinforced aluminum alloy (DRA) made by mechanical alloying 2124A aluminum powder and SiC particulate. It is produced in the form of extruded bar, rod, wire and shapes with cross section inclusive of 1 inch (25.4 mm) diameter or less.
AMS4369 is a new specification for extruded 2124A discontinuously reinforced with silicon carbide particulate. Increased use of advanced discontinuously reinforced aluminum alloys on aircraft and space structures has resulted in the potential to reduce weight.
