    1. Scope

    1.1 This standard specifies the requirements for thermal post-processing of parts produced via metal powder bed fusion to achieve the required material properties and microstructure to meet engineering requirements. This standard is intended to be referenced by Material Part Property specifications for powder bed fusion. Currently, this standard includes thermal post-processing for the materials including titanium alloys, cobalt 28 chromium 6 molybdenum, alloy UNS N07718, alloy UNS N06625, alloy, UNS 31603 and AlSi10Mg. This specification will be updated as new powder bed fusion material heat treatments are developed.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
