Grade 5 / Ti6Al4V

Ti6Al4V (titanium grade 5) is a two phase alpha and beta grade of titanium and is the most widely used of all the titanium grades. It is supplied in the annealed condition as per AMS 4928R or BS2TA11 for ease of machinability and can be strengthened with a relatively simple heat treatment to offer very high mechanical properties.

The combination of these good mechanical properties (maintained up to ~400°C), a low density of 4.42 g/cm3 and a very good corrosion resistance make Ti-6Al-4V ideal for applications in the aerospace, marine, offshore oil & gas and motorsport industries.
