This specification covers a premium aircraft-quality, maraging alloy steel in the form of bars, forgings, mechanical tubing, flash welded rings, and stock for forging or flash welded rings. These products have been used typically for parts requiring through hardening, without quenching, to a minimum yield strength of 240 ksi (1655 MPa) and where such parts may require welding during fabrication, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Rationale: AMS6512G results from a revision of frequency-severity cleanliness rating from an acceptance test to a periodic test and a revision of testing and reporting of properties for stock for forgings and flash welded rings.
