Steel Bars, Forgings, and Tubing, 0.95cr 0.22v (0.48-0.53c) (SAE 6150)
This specification covers an aircraft-quality, low-alloy steel in the form of bars, forgings, mechanical tubing, and forging stock.
These products have been used typically for parts 0.500 inch (12.50 mm) and under in nominal section thickness at time of heat treatment requiring a through-hardening steel capable of developing hardness as high as 52 HRC when properly hardened and tempered and also parts of greater thickness but requiring proportionately lower hardness, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Data Sets - Support Documents
The committee of Carbon and Low Alloy Steels, AMS Committee E, shall prepare, coordinate, and revise documents related to carbon and low alloy steels technology, such as steel cleanliness and steel quality assurance sampling, 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.
