titanium-rectangular-barsTitanium is a chemical element with symbol Ti and atomic number 22. It is a lustrous transition metal with a silver color, low density and high strength. It is highly resistant to corrosion in sea water, aqua regia, and chlorine.

Description

We have the following Titanium grades which are extensively used in Medical, Aerospace & Oil & Gas Industry :-

TI6AL4VELI :

Ti 6AL-4V ELI, or Grade 23, is the higher purity version of Ti 6Al-4V. It can be made into coils, strands, wires or flat wires. It’s the top choice for any sort of situation where a combination of high strength, light weight, good corrosion resistance and high toughness are required. It has a superior damage tolerance to other alloys.

These benefits make Grade 23 the ultimate dental and medical titanium grade. It can be used in biomedical applications such as implantable components due to its biocompatibility, good fatigue strength and low modulus. It can also be used in detailed surgical procedures, as:

  • Orthopedic pins and screwstitanium-ortho
  • Orthopedic cables
  • Ligature clips
  • Surgical staples
  • Springs
  • Orthodontic appliancesconformis-itotal-knee-implant
  • In joint replacements
  • Cryogenic vessels
  • Bone fixation devices

TI6AL4V

Known as the “workhorse” of the titanium alloys, Ti 6Al-4V, or Grade 5 titanium, is the most commonly used of all titanium alloys. It accounts for 50 percent of total titanium usage the world over.

Its usability lies in its many benefits. Ti 6Al-4V may be heat treated to increase its strength. It can be used in welded construction at service temperatures of up to 600° F. This alloy offers its high strength at a light weight, useful formability and high corrosion resistance.

Ti 6AI-4V’s usability makes it the best alloy for use in several industries, like the aerospace, medical, marine and chemical processing industries. It can be used in the creation of such technical things as:

  • Aircraft turbines titanium_aerospace
  • Engine components
  • Aircraft structural components
  • Aerospace fasteners
  • High-performance automatic parts
  • Marine applications
  • Sports equipments

Also there are different Grades Grade 1, 2,3,4, 7,11, 12 & Ti 5Al-2.5Sn
