Grade 5 Titanium, Strip*, Coil*, Foil*, Wire, ASTM B265 


* This item is in development in our strip facilities and not currently available in production quantities. Please contact our Technical Services for trials/prototypes.
Ulbrich Shaped Wire manufactures Titanium 6-4 in small to large production quantities. 

Applications 

Tension set rings, bolts, bicycle parts, biomedical implants, high-temperature structural applications in the aircraft industry 

Description 

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, it is heat treatable. This grade is an excellent combination of strength, corrosion resistance, weld and fabricability.
