Titanium Alloys - Ti15V3Cr3Sn3Al Properties and Fabrication

Chemical Formula

Ti15V3Cr3Sn3Al

Background

This metastable beta alloy is used primarily in sheet metal applications, since it is strip producible, age hardenable and highly cold formable. It is used in a variety of airframe applications, in many vases replacing hot formed Ti6Al4V. It can also be produced as foil and is an excellent casting alloy. Ti15V3Cr3Sn3Al has also been evaluated for aerospace tankage applications, high strength hydraulic tubing and fasteners.
