SAE AMS5612 Revision J, May 1, 2007
Steel, Corrosion and Heat-Resistant, Bars, Wire, Forgings, Tubing, and Rings 12Cr Ferrite Controlled, Annealed
Includes all amendments and changes through Reaffirmation Notice , October 2012
Published By:SAE International (SAE)
This specification covers an air craft-quality, corrosion and heat-resistant steel in the form of bars, wire, forgings, mechanical tubing, flash welded rings, and stock for forging or flash welded rings.
These products have been used typically for parts requiring a combination of high room temperature tensile properties with oxidation resistance up to 1000 F (538 C) and where control of ferrite contents is necessary, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Certain design and processing procedures may cause these products to become susceptible to stress-corrosion cracking; ARP1110 recommends practices minimize such conditions.
