This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of plate 1.000 to 6.000 inch (25.40 to 152.40 mm), inclusive, in nominal thickness (see 8.4).
This plate has been used typically for parts requiring a high level of mechanical properties and moderate resistance to
stress-corrosion cracking, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Rationale: New material specification which covers aluminum alloy 7160-T7451 in the form of plate. This product provides improved mechanical properties and corrosion resistance when compared to legacy 7050-T7451.
