AEROSPACE TITANIUM GRADES

Titanium is a popular metal in the aerospace industry because it has many useful qualities. It is strong and lightweight, which is important for building aircraft and spacecraft. It is also resistant to corrosion and can withstand extreme temperatures. These properties make it a good choice for use in many different parts of an aircraft or spacecraft, such as the structure, engines, and other mechanical systems.

One of the main benefits of using titanium is that it helps to reduce the weight of the vehicle. This is important because it can make the aircraft or spacecraft more fuel efficient. Titanium is also strong, so it can handle a lot of force and stress. It is also resistant to corrosion, which means it won’t break down or wear out easily when it is exposed to harsh conditions.

Overall, titanium is a valuable material in the aerospace industry because it has many useful qualities. It is strong, lightweight, and resistant to corrosion and extreme temperatures. These properties make it a good choice for use in many different parts of an aircraft or spacecraft.

Titanium Round Bar diameters range from 0.125″ to 14.00″ diameter.

TITANIUM GRADES LISTED

6Al-4V Titanium is one of the most commonly used Titanium Grades in Aerospace.

Titanium metals are used heavily in aerospace and marine components due to the high tensile strength to density ratio, high corrosion, crack, and creep resistance. Depending on the application, titanium can be alloyed with zirconium, vanadium, aluminum, or other elements to make the components more robust.

6Al-4V Titanium is significantly stronger than other commercially pure titanium whilst still retaining the same stiffness and thermal properties. 

6Al-6V-2Sn Titanium (6-6-2) is a heat treatable, high strength titanium alloy with higher strength and section hardenability that 6Al-4V. but with lower toughness and ductility and limited weldability. The typical applications, but not limited to, of 6Al-6V-2Sn include airframe and jet engine parts, rocket engine cases, and ordnance components. 

In terms of mechanical properties, 6Al-6V-2Sn titanium is generally considered to have slightly lower strength and higher elongation (or stretchability) compared to 6Al-4V titanium. However, 6Al-6V-2Sn titanium is known for its excellent fatigue resistance, meaning it is able to withstand repeated loading without failing.

6Al-2Sn-4Zr-2Mo Titanium (also known as 6-2-4-2 Titanium) is an alpha-beta titanium alloy capable of being heat treated to higher strengths in greater section sizes that 6Al-4V. Widely used in forged components, 6-2-4-2 beta forged material has enhanced strength, ductility and a combination of good low-cycle fatigue and fatigue-crack growth resistance. This alloy is used in the intermediate compressor stages of turbine engines for disks and blades, seals and for airframe parts.

6Al-2Sn-4Zr-6Mo titanium, also known as Ti-6Al-2Sn-4Zr-6Mo or simply 6-2-4-6 titanium, is a type of titanium alloy that is made up of a combination of titanium, aluminum, tin, zirconium, and molybdenum.

6% Aluminum is added to pure titanium to increase the strength of the alloy. It also improves the corrosion resistance and fatigue resistance of the material. 2% Tin is added to improve the corrosion resistance of the alloy. It also helps to increase the toughness and fatigue resistance of the material. 4% Zirconium is added to improve the corrosion resistance and strength of the alloy. It also helps to increase the fatigue resistance of the material. 6% Molybdenum is added to improve the toughness and fatigue resistance of the alloy. It also helps to increase the corrosion resistance of the material.

These properties make it a valuable material in the aerospace industry, and it is used in a variety of applications to help improve the performance and reliability of aircraft and spacecraft.

Ti-6-2-2-2-2 is another way to refer to the titanium alloy Ti 6Al 2Sn 2Mo 2Cr. The “Ti-6-2-2-2-2” designation is a shorthand way of indicating the composition of the alloy, with the numbers representing the percentage of each element present. In this case, the alloy consists of 6% aluminum, 2% tin, 2% molybdenum, and 2% chromium, in addition to the titanium base. This alloy is known for its high strength, good corrosion resistance, and high temperature stability, and is commonly used in aerospace and other high-stress applications.

Grade 6 Ti-5Al-2.5Sn alloy has high service temperature of 480°C (896°F), medium strength, and excellent weldability and fabricability. This alloy has good oxidation resistance and microstructure stability; however it is not heat-treatable. Usually offered in Tube form for Aerospace Hydraulics.
