Have some 0.030" 6Al-4V sheet I'd like to harden for my model boats, came across this, does it sound right?:
If the material is plate or strip, then the solutionize temperature is lowered to approximatly 1650F to 1675F. This is than followed by a water quench. The aging procedure is by artificial means by precipitation treatment at a temperature in the range of 900F to 1100F and a soak time at temperature of between 4 to 8 hours (depending on cross sectional thickness) It is critically important that the furnace hearth and walls be clean and free from foreign matter such as scale from steel treatment. In fact, do not use the furnace for process both steel and Ti alloys.
