SAE AMS 7912A:2001 pdf download Aluminum-Beryllium Alloy, Extrusions 38Al – 62Be Annealed
1 . SCOPE:
1 .1 Form:
This specification covers an aluminum-beryllium alloy in the form of bars, rods, tubing, and shapes consolidated from powder by extrusion.
1 .2 Application:
These extrusions have been used typically for parts requiring high thermal conductivity, low density,and high modulus of elasticity, but usage is not limited to such applications.
1 .3 Safety-Hazardous Materials:
While the materials, methods, applications, and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use. It is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure familiarity with the safe and proper use of any hazardous materials and to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel involved.
1 .3.1 WARNING: Beryllium Alloy: Inhalation of dust or fumes may cause serious chronic lung disease. Potential cancer hazard based principally on animal tests.
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 canceled and no superseding document has been specified, the last published issue of that document shall apply.
