SAE AMS 4278B:2003 pdf download Aluminum Alloy, Alclad Sheet 5.6Zn – 2.5Mg – 1.6Cu – 0.23Cr (Alclad 7075-0) Annealed, Fine Grained
1.1 Form: This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of alclad sheet with a fine-grain core of ASTM No. 6 or finer.
1.2 Application: This sheet has been used typically for severely formed structural parts which will be subsequently heat treated and painted or otherwise protected from corrosion, but usage is not limited to such applications.
1.2.1 Certain design and processing procedures may cause this sheet to become susceptible to stress-corrosion cracking after heat treatment; ARP823 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
2. APPLICABLE DOCUMENTS: The issue of the following documents in effect on the date of the purchase order forms a part of this specification to the extent supplied herein. The supplier may work to a subsequent revision of a document unless a specific document issue is specified. When the referenced document has been cancelled and no superseding document has been specified, the last published issue of that document shall apply.
