Abstract:

This practice is intended for use in the heat treatment of wrought aluminum alloys for general purpose applications. Aluminum alloys are typically heated in air chamber furnaces or molten salt baths. Though lead baths, oil baths, or fluidized beds may be used, uncontrolled heating is not permitted. The furnace temperature uniformity and calibration shall conform to the specified requirements. Preparation for heat treatment of alloys shall follow the racking, spacing, and cleanliness requirements. Solution heat treatment shall follow the recommended soaking times and quenching procedures. Precipitation heat treatment shall conform to the prescribed times, temperatures, and annealing procedures. The alloys shall be subjected to tensile testing, eutectic melting and heat-treat-induced porosity analysis, intergranular corrosion test, and Alclad diffusion test.

Scope:

1.1 This practice is intended for use in the heat treatment of wrought aluminum alloys for general purpose applications.

1.1.1 The heat treatment of wrought aluminum alloys used in specific aerospace applications is covered in AMS 2772.

1.1.2 Heat treatment of aluminum alloy castings for general purpose applications is covered in Practice B 917/B 917M.

1.2 Times and temperatures appearing in the heat-treatment tables are typical for various forms, sizes, and manufacturing methods and may not provide the optimum heat treatment for a specific item.

1.3 Some alloys in the 6xxx series may achieve the T4 temper by quenching from within the solution temperature range during or immediately following a hot working process, such as upon emerging from an extrusion die. Such alternatives to furnace heating and immersion quenching are indicated in , by Footnote L, for heat treatment of wrought aluminum alloys. However, this practice does not cover the requirements for a controlled press heat treatment. (Refer to Practice B 807 for press heat treatment of aluminum alloys.)

1.4 This practice is in inch-pound units.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
