What is Ti6Al4V?
Product Description. Ti-6Al-4V is a titanium alloy with high specific strength and excellent corrosion resistance. It is one of the most commonly used titanium alloys. High tensile strength and lightweight/low density: The military, aviation, and aerospace industries have long benefited from these properties of Ti-6Al-4V. It is used in the structural components of aircraft, hydraulic systems, engine components, helicopter rotor blades, rockets, and spacecraft. Commonly referred to as Ti-6AL-4V, this designation refers to its chemical composition of almost 90% titanium, 6% aluminum, 4% vanadium, 0.25% iron, and 0.2% oxygen. Moreover, Ti6Al4V presents excellent corrosion resistance (in aqueous solutions, oxidizing acids, chlorides, rocket fuels, and alkalis) and to temperature. It resists well creep, remains strong, and fractures challenging at up to 380°C.
How is Ti-6Al-4V manufactured?
Regarding production costs, the buy-to-fly ratio is minimal in alloys such as Ti6Al-4V. These materials are manufactured by a forging process followed by a machining operation that gives its final geometry. The main difference between Grade 23 (also known as Ti6Al4V ELI) and Grade 5 Ti6Al4V is the former's reduced content of interstitial elements. Low interstitial element content improves ductility and fracture toughness but reduces the strength of the alloy (Azom, 2002). An ulnar shortening osteotomy was performed using the Acumed Osteotomy System, which contains a titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V) plate with titanium screws containing trace amounts of nickel, as seen in the chemical composition guide from Acumed in Fig. Ti6Al4V titanium alloy is very commonly used in medical devices and applications. In the environment of the human body, it exhibits neutral behavior and high corrosion resistance, making it a biocompatible material. Under fully reversed, constant amplitude loading conditions at 20 kHz, the duplex Ti–6Al–4V alloy exhibits a fatigue limit of approximately 410 MPa.
What are the advantages of Ti-6AL-4V?
The advantages of Ti6Al4v alloy are high strength, low density, and the advantage of it being non-toxic, and the human body does not reject it. Because of these properties, Ti6Al4v is distinguished by its unique properties. However, the as-SLMed Ti-6Al-4V alloy parts typically exhibit low flexibility because of the formation of acicular and brittle α′ martensites. It is essential to use post-heat treatment to change their microstructures to achieve superior mechanical properties. Ti 3 AI 2.5 is the titanium alloy with the best weldability. It is also strong at high temperatures, like the other titanium alloys. This grade 12 titanium alloy is unique in that it exhibits characteristics of stainless steel (one of the other strong metals), such as being heavier than the other titanium alloys.
