Grade 5 Titanium (Ti-6Al-4V) UNS R56400

Grade 5 Titanium (Ti-6Al-4V) is the most common alloy of Titanium, accounting for 50 percent of total titanium usage the world over. Ti-6Al-4V contains roughly 6% Aluminum and 4% Vanadium for added strength. Ti 6AL-4V is high strength, light weight, and corrosion resistant, making it an excellent choice for demanding applications.

Short Description

Grade 5 Titanium (Ti-6Al-4V) Strip*, Coil*, Foil*, Wire, ASTM B265


Ti 6-4 (Grade 5) is significantly stronger than commercially pure titanium while having the same stiffness and thermal properties (excluding thermal conductivity, which is about 60% lower in Grade 5 than in CP Ti). Among its many advantages, Grade 5 Titanium it is heat treatable. This grade is an excellent combination of strength, corrosion resistance, weldability and fabricability.
