The preferred method of welding is by means of inert gas arc welding for best results. Either carbide or high speed tool steel tooling may be used. Welding by all of xstm standard processes may be done, including gas torch welding.

Use of an oil base lubricant during machining operations is recommended. Modulus of Elasticity Tension.

The AL alloy does respond to heat treatment which is accomplished by annealing and relatively low temperature aging. Electrical resistivity and conductivity shall be determined. This specification covers aluminum-alloy extruded bar, rod, tube, pipe, Schedules 40 and 80structural profiles, and profiles in selected tempers for use as electric conductors.

Type A material, last covered in the issue of this specification, is no longer available; therefore, requirements for cold-finished rectangular bar have been deleted. Shear strength values are: Tensile properties of the specimens such as tensile and yield strengths and bending shall be determined by tension test and bending test, respectively.

Hot working generally is not required because the alloy has very good cold working characteristics. Machinability by conventional means is good. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Forming characteristics are good by conventional processes. Aging is done at different temperatures and times, depending upon the finished temper desired as follows: T6 F for 20 hours and air cool.

Distributors will offer small quantity buys while mills will generally only sell large quantities, with delivery times anywhere from 10 to 50 weeks depending on size and form required This material is stocked primarily in Bar Products by 7 distributors but is also available to a lesser extent in Tubular Products.

No data, although the alloy is considered forgeable.

The bars, rods, tubes, pipes, structural profiles and profiles shall be produced by hot extrusion or by similar methods. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

This is a high electrical conductivity aluminum alloy also possessing good mechanical strength properties. It is hardened strengthened by heat treatment. Easily cold worked, or cold formed in either the annealed or aged conditions.

T61 F for 6 hours and air cool. Annealing is done at F for 3 hours at temperature, followed by controlled cooling at a rate of 50 F per hour down to F, then air cool. See also Cold Working. Pipe or tube may be produced through porthole or bridge type dies. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.


The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore each system shall be used independently of the other. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. Hardens due to cold working or aging heat treatment — see “Aging”. Electrical bus bar conductor applications for use in enclosed bus electrical installations.

A stress relief anneal after cold working may be done at F with air cooling. See “Annealing” and “Aging”. T63 – 21 ksi. When welded in the heat treated condition the subsequent parts will be lower in strength because of weld heat input. T61 – 17 ksi. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Filler rod of the same alloy should be used.

T6 – 22 ksi. T63 F for 19 hours and air cool.
