6AL-4V Eli Titanium

Alternate Names: Grade 23 Titanium, 6-4 Eli Titanium

Description: 6AL-4V Eli is an alloyed Grade of Titanium. It is strengthened by the inclusion of roughly 6% Aluminum and 4% Vanadium. It is known to be of higher purity than its cousin, 6AL-4V Grade 5, because it has lower inclusions of Iron, Carbon, and Oxygen (ELI = Extra Low Interstitial). 6AL-4V Eli typically comes in the annealed condition, but can be found in beta annealed condition as well. 6AL-4V Eli Grade 23 shows high strength and toughness, as well as good corrosion resistance. As a biocompatible Grade of Titanium, it is well known for its applications in medical and dental industries. It is also found in aerospace applications.

Machinability: The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) determined a rating system of machinability of different materials. 160 Brinell B1112 steel was arbitrarily assigned a machinability rating of 100%. Using this as a comparable standard, ratings less than 100% are more challenging to machine, and ratings more than 100% are easier to machine. Titanium 6AL-4V Eli is rated at 22% of B1112. Low cutting speeds, heavy feed rates, sharp tools, and ample cutting fluid are prescribed.

6AL-4V Titanium Eli is available in the following Product Forms:
Round Bar (Rod), Rectangular Flat Bar (Block), Plate, and Sheet.
