6AL-4V / Grade 5 Titanium

6AL-4V / Grade 5 titanium is the most commonly used alloy in many different industries. 6Al-4V/Grade 5 titanium is much stronger than commercially pure titanium, but still has the same stiffness and most of the same thermal properties (it is much lower in 6AL-4V/Grade 5 than other alloys).

One of the most important characteristics of 6AL-4V / Grade 5 titanium, though, is that it is heat treatable and most can even be welded. Whether you are in the aerospace, automotive, or other industries, this alloy can be used in a wide range of applications. The chart shows the mechanical, tensile, and physical properties of this 6AL-4V / Grade 5 alloy titanium.  Some of our available products include 6AL-4V/Grade 5 titanium sheet, bar, extrusions, strip, wire as well as custom-made products.
