Strip, Coil, Foil, Wire, ASTM Grade 21, ASTM B265 


High resistance to aircraft hydraulic fluids. Used in warm airframes or engine structures, honeycombs, fasteners, metal matrix composites, welded and seamless tubing. 


Titanium Beta 21 S (Grade 21) is a beta alloy developed as an oxidation-resistant aerospace material and as a matrix for metal-matrix composites. Titanium Beta 21 S offers the good formability and weldability of a beta alloy, but with greatly improved oxidation resistance and creep strength.

Additional Properties

Corrosion Resistance

Refer to NACE (National Associate of Corrosion Engineers) for recommendations.


#1 - Hot rolled annealed and descaled. It is available in strip, foil and ribbon. It is used for applications where a smooth decorative finish is not required. 
#2D - Dull finish produced by cold rolling, annealing and descaling. Used for deep drawn parts and those parts that need to retain lubricants in the forming process. 
#2B - Smooth finish produced by cold rolling, annealing and descaling. A light cold rolling pass is added after anneal with polished rolls giving it a brighter finish than 2D. 
#BA- Bright annealed cold rolled and bright annealed 
#CBA- Course bright annealed cold rolled matte finish and bright anneal 
#2 - Cold Rolled 
#2BA- Smooth finish produced by cold rolling and bright annealing. A light pass using highly polished rolls produces a glossy finish. A 2BA finish may be used for lightly formed applications where a glossy finish is desired in the formed part. 
Polished - Various grit finish for specific polish finished requirements. 
* Not all finishes are available for all alloys - Contact Ulbrich Sales for more information.
