The Benefits of
Titanium Alloys

Titanium alloys are as strong as some steel but approximately 45% lighter. The alloys also perform well against corrosion and provide great formability. They also have a high tensile strength, toughness, fatigue and fracture resistance.

The workhorse alloys of Ti 6/4 and CP Ti form the basis of our portfolio. Bulk weldable and feedstock are available to customer specifications and dimensions.

What are Titanium Alloys?

Titanium alloys are a group of metallic materials made primarily of titanium combined with elements such as aluminium, vanadium, nickel, and molybdenum. These alloys are known for their high strength, low density, and excellent corrosion resistance, making them ideal for use in aerospace, medical, and automotive industries.

The addition of other elements to titanium changes its physical and mechanical properties, allowing for the creation of alloys with specific properties tailored for various applications. For example, adding aluminium to titanium produces an alloy with increased strength and stiffness, while the addition of vanadium enhances its toughness and heat resistance.

Some common titanium alloys include Ti-6Al-4V, which is 6% aluminium and 4% vanadium, Ti-6Al-2Sn-4Zr-2Mo, and Ti-6Al-2Sn-4Zr-6Mo. These alloys have various applications, such as aircraft engines, surgical implants, and structural components in high-performance automobiles.

What is the Strongest Titanium Alloy?

The strongest titanium alloy is generally considered to be Ti-6Al-4V (also known as Grade 5 titanium), which is an alpha-beta alloy consisting of 6% aluminium, 4% vanadium, with the remainder being titanium. This alloy has a high strength-to-weight ratio, good corrosion resistance, and excellent biocompatibility, making it a popular choice for aerospace, medical, and military applications.

Ti-6Al-4V is known for its high tensile strength, which can range from 880 MPa (130 ksi) to 1100 MPa (160 ksi) depending on the manufacturing process and heat treatment used. Its high strength makes it useful for applications such as aircraft parts, turbine blades, and high-performance automotive components.

Other titanium alloys, such as Ti-6Al-2Sn-4Zr-6Mo and Ti-10V-2Fe-3Al, also have high strength and can be used in applications where strength is a critical factor. However, Ti-6Al-4V remains the most widely used and well-known titanium alloy for high-strength applications.

What does MPa Stand for?

MPa stands for megapascal, which is a unit of pressure and stress commonly used in engineering and science. One megapascal is equal to one million pascals, where a pascal is the SI unit of pressure and stress, defined as the force per unit area.

Megapascals are often used to measure the strength and mechanical properties of materials, such as tensile strength, yield strength, and ultimate strength. For example, the tensile strength of a material might be given in megapascals (MPa), which represents the maximum stress that the material can withstand before it breaks or undergoes plastic deformation.

In general, the higher the MPa value, the stronger and more durable the material. For example, some high-strength steel alloys can have tensile some high-strength steel alloys can have tensile strengths up to 2000 MPa, while some advanced composite materials can have tensile strengths of 500 MPa or more.

What Can Titanium Alloys be Used for?

  1. Aerospace: Titanium alloys are used in aircraft components, such as engine parts, landing gear, and structural components, due to their high strength-to-weight ratio and corrosion resistance.

 

  1. Medical implants: Titanium alloys are biocompatible and resistant to corrosion, making them ideal for use in surgical implants such as hip and knee replacements, dental implants, and spinal implants.

 

  1. Chemical processing: Titanium alloys are resistant to corrosion and can withstand high temperatures, making them suitable for use in chemical processing equipment such as reactors, heat exchangers, and tanks.

 

  1. Sports equipment: Titanium alloys are used in high-performance sports equipment such as golf clubs, bicycle frames, and tennis rackets due to their strength, stiffness, and lightweight.

 

  1. Automotive: Titanium alloys can be used in automotive applications such as exhaust systems, suspension components, and engine parts due to their high strength, heat resistance, and corrosion resistance.

 

  1. Jewellery: Titanium alloys are used in jewellery due to their strength, durability, and hypoallergenic properties.

 

  1. Oil and gas: Titanium alloys are used in oil and gas production equipment such as offshore drilling rigs, pipelines, and wellheads due to their corrosion resistance and high strength-to-weight ratio.

 

Overall, titanium alloys are versatile materials that can be used in a variety of applications where strength, durability, and corrosion resistance are required.
