Titanium Ti6Al4V

Titanium Ti6Al4V is a light alloy with excellent mechanical properties, fracture toughness, fatigue strength and corrosion resistance combined with low specific weight and biocompatibility.

Grade 23 differs from Grade 5 by the reduced oxygen content (max 0.13% in Grade 23): this ensures improved ductility and fracture toughness, with a slight reduction in strength.

Typical applications can be fracture-critical parts, low and high-temperature components and structures, such as fasteners, discs, hubs, spacers, seals, compressor blades, structural parts and complex turbine engine components. Ti6Al4V is ideal for many high-performance engineering applications in aerospace and motorsport and the production of biomedical implants due to its higher strength, low modulus, and fatigue resistance.

Parts can be machined, welded, shot-peened, polished and coated.
