This specification covers a corrosion-resistant steel in the form of welded tubing. This tubing has been used typically for parts, such as fluid-conducting lines not subjected to high pressure, requiring good corrosion resistance, but usage is not limited to such applications. Welding, brazing, or other exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F (427 degrees C) during fabrication may impair corrosion resistance.
Rationale: AMS5565L revises Condition (3.2), Fabrication (3.3) and Properties (3.4, Table 2 to remove reference to bend testing which is not a requirement in this specification) and to insert minimum tensile strengths using values from ASTM A 249, and is a Five Year Review and update of this specification.
Also known as: SAE AMS 5565
