What is Properties and Applications of Titanium Alloy Ti6Al4V

Wholesale gas prices in the Netherlands and the UK have risen 20 percent recently amid concerns about Russian supplies.

The EU plans to cut its dependence on Russian gas by two-thirds this year and stop importing Russian fossil fuels by 2027. Russia exported about 155 billion cubic meters of gas to the EU in 2021.

The US recently said it would try to supply 15bn cubic meters of LNG to the EU this year. U.S. LNG plants are running at full capacity, and analysts say much of the extra gas the U.S. sends to Europe comes from what should have been exported elsewhere.

The German government called Russia “an unreliable energy supplier”. Even though the German government claimed that they have been preparing for the situation for a long time that Russia may stop sending gas one day, experts say it is hard for the EU to replace all of Russia’s gas exports any time soon.

The supply and prices of many Ti6Al4V alloy will continue to be influenced by international situations.

What is Titanium Alloy?

Titanium alloy Ti6Al4V is a medium-strength α-β type two-phase titanium alloy
containing 6% α-stabilizing element AI and 4% β-stabilizing element V. This
alloy has excellent comprehensive properties and has obtained the most extensive
applications in the aviation and aerospace industries.

The main properties and uses

Ti6Al4V titanium alloy is heated below 430 ℃ for a long time to form a very
thin and protective oxide film. As the heating temperature increases, the oxide
film thickens and its protection becomes poor. After the alloy was heated at 700
°C for 2 h, the oxide film thickness reached 25 μrn. Heating at temperatures
above 800°C forms a sparse oxide layer. After heating at 1000 °C for 1 h, the
thickness of the oxide layer reached 0.65 mm.

Ti6Al4V alloy can be welded by argon arc welding, spot welding, brazing,
electron beam welding and plasma welding. The strength of the welded joint is
basically the same as that of the base metal.

When Ti6Al4V titanium alloy parts are in contact with aluminum alloy and
structural steel parts, especially under certain corrosive medium conditions,
aluminum alloy and structural steel parts will suffer accelerated corrosion and
damage as the anode of the contact couple due to the negative electrode
potential. Therefore, between TC4 titanium alloy parts and aluminum alloy or
structural steel parts, protective measures such as padding and anti-corrosion
tape should be taken. TC4 alloy parts are strictly prohibited from contact with
parts or tools of lead, zinc, cadmium, tin, silver, bismuth and other

Before vacuum annealing, the oxide skin and oxygen-rich layer on the surface
of the parts should be removed, and the oil should be carefully removed before
entering the furnace. When vacuum annealing parts with complex shapes, fixtures
must be used to reduce the deformation of parts. Into the furnace parts are
preferably filled with pre-degassed titanium oxide-free chips to prevent
oxidation of the parts.

Ti6Al4V titanium alloy is now widely used in the manufacture of aero-engine
fans and compressor discs and blades, as well as various load-bearing beams,
frames, joints and fasteners in aircraft structures.

The Free Trade Agreement between India and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has come into force on.

The UAE is the gateway to the Middle East, North Africa, Central Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa, said Subramaniam, a senior official at India's Ministry of Commerce and Industry.  The agreement will help boost bilateral trade in goods from $60 billion a year now to $100 billion a year within five years.

On 18 February 2022, India and the United Arab Emirates signed the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement. With the entry into force of the agreement, 90 percent of Indian goods and 65 percent of UAE goods will enjoy tariff-free market access.

Apart from its FTA with the UAE, India is also pursuing FTAs with Australia, the UK, Canada, Israel, the European Union, and the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Influenced by international situations, the supply and prices of many Ti6Al4V alloy are still very uncertain.
