This specification covers a corrosion-resistant steel in the form of sheet and strip. These products have been used typically for parts requiring strength and moderate forming or bending, but usage is not limited to such applications. Mechanical properties specified herein are obtained by cold working (strain hardening) and not by heat treatment. Therefore, the cold-worked product should not be heated to a temperature which adversely affects the mechanical properties or corrosion resistance before, during, or after fabrication.
AMS5518M revises Scope (1.1.1), Properties (126.96.36.199), Reports (4.4), and is a Five Year Review and update of this specification.
