AerMet® 100 (UNS K92580) is a alloy that has been designed to have properties of excellent hardness and strength combined with exceptional ductility and toughness. AM 100 is used in applications that require high fracture toughness and excellent resistance to stress corrosion cracking and fatigue. AerMet® 100 is considered as a candidate for use in applications such as Armor, Fasteners, Landing Gear, Jet Engine Shafts, Structural Members, Drive Shafts, Structural Tubing. Aermet 100 bar is supplied in the normalized and overaged condition (maximum hardness 372HB) ready for subsequent heat treatment.

Heat Treatment: Aermet 100 bar (to AMS 6532) is supplied in the normalized and overaged as follows:
Normalize: 1650 °F ± 25 (899 °C ± 14) for 60 minutes ± 15 plus air cool
Overage: 1250 °F ± 25 (677 °C ± 14), for 16 hours minimum plus air cool

This followed by a three part heat treatment.
Solution Treatment: 1625°F +/-25°F (885°C +/-14°C) for 1 hour, followed by a controlled quench.
Cold Stabilization: Cool to –100 °F ± 15 (-73 °C ± 8) for 1 hour minimum, air warm
Ageing (standard): 900°F +/-10°F (482°C +/-6°C) for 5 hours, air cool
