What are Alpha Beta Titanium Alloys?
« on: May 16, 2016, 02:14:37 PM »
Alpha Beta alloys are heat treatable and most are weldable. Typical properties include:

•         Strength levels are medium to high

•         High temperature creep strength is not as good as most alpha alloys

•         Cold forming may be limited but hot forming qualities are normally good

•         Many alloys can be super-plastically formed

The most commonly used alpha beta alloy is Ti6Al4V, developed in many variations of the basic formulation for the widest possible choice of key properties  and for many widely differing applications.
