    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers, when specified by material specification or purchase order, the heat treatment of aluminum alloy castings from all casting processes.

    1.1.1 The heat treatment of aluminum alloy castings used in specific aerospace applications is covered in AMS 2771 and specific AMS material specifications.

    1.1.2 The heat treatment of wrought aluminum alloys is covered in Practice B918.

    1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    1.2.1 SI UnitsThe SI units are shown in brackets or in separate tables.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
