Steel, Corrosion Resistant, Bars, Wire, Forgings, Tubing, and Rings, 16cr 4.0ni 0.30(Cb+Ta) 4.0cu Solution Heat Treated, Precipitation Hardenable
- Aerospace Material Specification
This specification covers a precipitation-hardenable, corrosion-resistant steel in the form of bars, wire, forgings, mechanical tubing, flash welded rings, and stock for forging, flash welded rings, or heading.
These products have been used typically for parts requiring corrosion resistance and high strength up to 600 degrees F (316 degrees C), but usage is not limited to such applications. Certain processing procedures and service conditions may cause these products to become susceptible to stress-corrosion cracking; ARP1110 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
Data Sets - Support Documents
The committee of Corrosion and Heat Resistant Steels and Alloys and Specialty Steels and Alloys, AMS Committee F, will prepare, coordinate, and revise documents related to corrosion and heat resistant steels and alloys and specialty steels and alloys technology, such as stainless steels and nickel and base alloys, 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.
