Magnesium Alloy, Extrusions, 5.5Zn - 0.45Zr (ZK60A - T5), Precipitation Heat Treated
This specification covers a magnesium alloy in the form of extruded bars, rods, wire, tubing, and profiles.
These extrusions have been used typically for parts requiring toughness and moderate abrasion resistance, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Data Sets - Support Documents
The committee of Nonferrous Alloys, AMS Committee D, shall prepare, coordinate, and revise documents related to nonferrous metals technology, such as aluminum, magnesium, and copper, through the participation of metals suppliers, users, and interested government agencies. Committee activities shall provide a forum for the cooperative interchange of ideas and experience of the participants, resulting in the publication of specifications that embody sound, established aerospace industry practices and requirements to serve the suppliers and customers of aerospace materials.
