Titanium Alloys - Ti8Al1Mo1V

Chemical Formula

Ti8Al1Mo1V

Background

This near-alpha alloy was designed primarily for creep resistance up to 430°C (805°F). As such it has been used in aeroengine applications such as forged fan or compressor blades. The Ti-8-1-1 alloy has the highest tensile modulus and lowest density of any commercial titanium alloy.
