Grade 1 Titanium:
Grade 1 Titanium is the first of four commercially pure titanium grades. It is the softest and most ductile of these grades. It possesses the greatest formability, excellent corrosion resistance and high impact toughness.
Because of all these qualities, Grade 1 is the material of choice for any application where ease of formability is required and is commonly available as titanium plate and tubing. These include Chemical processing, chlorate manufacturing, dimensional stable anodes, desalination, architecture, medical industry, marine industry, automotive parts, airframe structure etc.
Grade 2 Titanium:
Grade 2 Titanium is called the “workhorse” of the commercially pure titanium industry, thanks to its varied usability and wide availability. It shares many of the same qualities as Grade 1 titanium, but it is slightly stronger. Both are equally corrosion resistant.
This grade possesses good weldability, strength, ductility and formability. This makes Grade 2 titanium bar and sheet are the prime choice for many fields of applications including architecture, power generation, medical industry, hydro-carbon processing, marine industry, exhaust pipe shrouds, airframe skin, desalination, chemical processing, chlorate manufacturing etc.
Grade 5 Titanium:
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, engine components, aircraft structural components, aerospace fasteners, high-performance automatic parts, marine applications, sports equipments etc.
