AMS 5568 is an aerospace material specification for a corrosion resistant precipitation
hardenable steel alloy. Common names for the alloy are 17-7 or UNS S17700.
AMS 5568 material is in the form of welded tubing.
This alloy is typically used where a combination of strength and corrosion resistance is required
in applications with service temperatures up to 600 deg F and the component part requires
ductility for additional forming prior to precipitation hardening.
Material is supplied in the solution treated condition.
To assure the results of the final precipitation hardening treatment of component parts; samples
of the product are tensile tested to specified minimum requirements in the as-shipped and after
an age hardening heat treatment.
