6AL-4V Titanium

Alternate Names: Grade 5 Titanium, 6-4 Titanium

Description: 6AL-4V is the most common alloy of Titanium. As an alloyed Grade of Titanium, it is strengthened by the inclusion of roughly 6% Aluminum and 4% Vanadium. It is known as an alpha-beta Titanium alloy, containing both alpha and beta phases at room temperature. 6AL-4V typically comes in the Annealed condition, but it can be strengthened by heat treatment, such as Solution Treating and Aging. The weldability can be poor due to the two-phase microstructure. Overall, 6AL-4V exhibits high strength, light weight, and corrosion resistance, which make it an excellent choice for applications in aerospace, medical, oil and gas, marine, and recreational industries.

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 is rated at 22% of B1112. Low cutting speeds, heavy feed rates, sharp tools, and ample cutting fluid are prescribed.

6AL-4V Titanium is available in the following Product Forms:

Round Bar (Rod), Rectangular Flat Bar (Block), Plate, Sheet, Billet, and Wire.
