Heat Treating 7076

Heat Treating 7076

Heat Treating 7076

I need the heat treating specs for 7076 Aluminum.
The material is less than 1 mm thick

Need the solution treatment temperature and the T6 precipitation treatment.

The supplier informed us that the stamped parts received are a mixed bag, some are annealed, some hardened, and some in between. Besides that about half are out of spec dimensionally.

RE: Heat Treating 7076

from Alcoa website's tech data sheet for 7075, they refer the reader to:


for details on heat treatment processes.  Hopefully that's available on the assist site?

RE: Heat Treating 7076

IF the specs for 7075 will work...

Solution: 480C - water quench
T6 Treatment - 120C - 24 hours

RE: Heat Treating 7076

Whoops, you said 7076.  Oh, well, same spec. applies.

Holler back if you have trouble finding it.

The cancellation notice reads: "Future heat treatment should refer to SAE-AMS-H-6088, “Heat Treatment of
Aluminum Alloys”."

RE: Heat Treating 7076

Thanks for the information.

While I madly searching the  supplier called and offered to redo all the parts form scratch with new material.

A quick resolution and an ending that makes everyone happy.
