AMS 2770, Aging 7075-T6 to T76

AMS 2770, Aging 7075-T6 to T76

AMS 2770, Aging 7075-T6 to T76

Needing confirmation on the process to age some 7075-T6 sheet to T76. It looks like since material is already T6 temper, per table 7 of AMS 2770 it would just require 16-18hrs at 325 degrees. Is this correct?

RE: AMS 2770, Aging 7075-T6 to T76

To be more clear. I'm trying to understand if the material has to have solution heat treatment again or just go through the aging treatment.

RE: AMS 2770, Aging 7075-T6 to T76

BHagood... or should I say... ‘btoyarzo’... straight talk-to-you...

This specification states EXACTLY WHAT TO DO, IF you have heat treating skills/knowledge.

This website cannot train You to understand aluminum-alloy heat treat fundamentals... There are plenty of books/publications/classes/etc for 'learning'.

We can only provide professional insights into topics that 'You have some fundamental understanding/orientation in/about'. It is obvious You need to know a lot more basics, before our detailed advice would be make sense and be useful.

NOTE1. With fundamental HT knowledge, the answer I gave You would be self-evident answer to your question.
