Standard Practice for Production, Distribution, and Procurement of Metal Stock
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, carbon and alloy steels, and corrosion and heat-resistant alloys.
Rationale: AS6279A incorporates updated definitions (2.2.1, 2.2.16, and 2.2.22), and editorial changes to address steels, corrosion resisting alloys, and heat resistant alloys in addition to titanium and titanium alloys.
