This specification covers a corrosion-resistant steel in the form of sheet and strip. These products have been used typically in fabrication of aircraft structural components requiring moderate forming and 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.
This document has been reaffirmed to comply with the SAE five-year review policy.
