SAE AMS 6320L:2003 pdf download Steel Bars, Forgings, and Rings 0.50Cr – 0.55Ni – 0.25Mo (0.33 – 0.38C) (SAE 8735)
1.1 Form: This specification covers an aircraft-quality, low-alloy steel in the form of bars, forgings, flash welded rings, and stock for forging or flash welded rings.
1.2 Application: These products have been used typically for parts, 0.75 inch (19.0 mm) and under in nominal section thickness at time of heat treatment, requiring a through-hardening steel capable of developing hardness as high as 40 HRC when properly hardened and tempered and for parts of greater thickness but requiring proportionally lower hardness but usage is not limited to such applications.
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 specified 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.
