Welding b137 all of the standard processes may be done, including gas torch welding. This is a high electrical conductivity aluminum alloy also possessing good mechanical strength properties. T61 F for 6 hours and air cool. When welded in the heat treated condition the subsequent parts will be lower in strength because of weld heat input. No data, although the alloy is considered forgeable.

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. Shear strength values are: 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.

Electrical resistivity and conductivity shall be determined. 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. T6 – 22 ksi. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore each system shall be used independently of the other.


This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Pipe or tube may be produced through porthole or bridge type dies. T63 – 21 ksi. Use of an oil base lubricant during machining operations is recommended. Filler rod of the same alloy should be used.

T63 F for 19 hours and air cool. It is hardened strengthened by heat treatment. Hot working generally is not required because the alloy has very good cold working characteristics. Forming characteristics are good by conventional processes.

Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with aztm standard. The preferred method of welding is by means of inert gas arc welding for best results.

Easily cold worked, or cold formed in either the annealed or aged conditions. T61 – 17 ksi.

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.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Hardens due to cold working or bb317 heat treatment — see “Aging”. 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. 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.


Tensile properties of the specimens such as tensile and yield strengths and bending shall be determined by tension test awtm bending test, respectively.

See also Cold Working. Aging is done at different temperatures and times, depending upon the finished temper desired as follows: A stress relief anneal after cold working may be done at F with air cooling.

ASTM B317 Grade 6101 T6

T6 F for 20 hours and air cool. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The AL alloy does respond to heat treatment which is accomplished by annealing and relatively low temperature aging. Either carbide or high speed tool aastm tooling may be used.

Modulus of Elasticity Tension. Machinability by conventional means is good. The bars, rods, tubes, pipes, structural profiles and profiles shall be produced by astj extrusion or by similar methods.
