713 aluminum ingot

713.0 (7.5Zn-0.7Cu-0.35Mg) Aluminum Alloy

  • Former designation. 613, Tenzalloy
  • Former ASTM. B26 ZC81A
  • Former SAE. 315
  • UNS number. A07130
  • Government. QQ-A-601, QQ-A-596
  • Description: 713 is commonly not heat treated. We typically always use 713.1 aluminum alloy. 713 is a high-strength aluminum casting alloy that has tensile, yield and elongation properties equivalent to the common heat treated alloys such as 355-T6 and 319-T6. The impact strength of 713 is greater than any of these alloys, and in several instances, the elongation is higher. 713 attains its strength by a natural aging process that gradually takes place at room temperature. The typical properties are reached after 10-14 days, and when testing for specification purposes, a 21-day period is used. Some slight further aging and strengthening takes place up to six months, at which time the alloy is stable and no further change of any kind takes place.
