Temper Definition
O Annealed
H112 Slightly strain harden from working at an elevated temperature or from limited amount of cold work
T5 Cooled from an elevated temperature shaping process and then artificially aged
T6 Solution heat-treated and then artificially aged
T66 Solution heat-treated and then artificially aged - mechanical property level higher than T6 achieved through special control of the process (6000 series alloys)
T6511 Solution heated-treaded, stress-relieved by stretching a controlled amount (permanent set 1% to 3% for extruded rod, bar, shapes and tube, 0.5% to 3% for drawn tube) and then artificially aged. Minor straightening is allowed after stretching to comply with standard tolerances
