What are Alpha Titanium Alloys?
« on: May 16, 2016, 02:13:50 PM »
Commercially pure Titanium and alpha alloys of titanium are non-heat treatable  and are generally very weldable . They have:

•         Low to medium strength

•         Good notch toughness

•         Reasonably good ductility

•         Excellent mechanical properties at cryogenic temperatures

Pure titanium and alpha alloys possess the highest corrosion resistance.

More highly alloyed near-alpha alloys offer optimum high temperature creep strength and oxidation resistance.
