Background

This near beta alloy was developed primarily for high strength applications in the 1241 MPa (180ksi) UTS range, in order t provide weight savings over steels in airframe forging operations.

The alloy also possesses the best hot die forgability of any commercial titanium alloy and is suitable for near net shape forging applications and isothermal forging.

Ti10V2Fe3Al also offers high strength/toughness combinations and is deep hardenable.

Fabrication

Specific requirements for strength and toughness can be developed by forging and finishing in a wide range of combinations of temperature and section reduction, as well as by selection of heat treatment parameters. Consultation with the alloy supplier is strongly recommended. One example of the manufacturing possibilities is:

         Forging – Rough 871-927°C (1600-1000°F)

         Solution Treating – 752-754°C (1385-1425°F), 1 hr, WQ.

         Ageing – 482-510°C (900-950°F), 8 hrs, AC.

         Weldability - Fair
