This specification covers a corrosion-resistant steel in the form of sheet, strip, and plate.
These products have been used typically for parts requiring corrosion resistance and high strength in service up to 700 °F (371 °C), but usage is not limited to such application. Product can be used in the solution heat treated condition and is capable of being precipitation heat treated to tensile strengths as high as 180 ksi (1241 MPa).
Certain design and processing procedures may cause these products to become susceptible to stress-corrosion cracking after precipitation heat treatment; ARP1110 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
