Titanium Sheet Grades

Titanium sheets are available in different thicknesses, widths, lengths, weights, and gauges. They can be made from commercially pure titanium and/or alloy grade titanium. They are useful in the industrial, medical, and aerospace industries.

Titanium sheets are sold in varying thicknesses that range from 0.5 mm to 5.0 mm. Customized sizes are available upon request to manufacturers.

Titanium Grades 

Titanium grade 1 sheets have a minimum thickness of 0.50 mm and a maximum of 3.0 mm. Sheets of this grade weigh between two and 11 kilograms per square meter. Their chemical make-up in nominal % is: 0.08 C, 0.18 O, 0.03 N, and 0.2 Fe. Their mechanical properties include: yield KSI minimum/maximum: 25/45, tensile KSI minimum: 35, and % elongation minimum: 24.

Titanium grade 2 sheets are commonly sold as 0.8 mm, 1.0 mm, 1.5 mm, 2.0 mm, and 3.0 mm – thick sheets. They weigh between 3.2 and 13 kilograms per square meter. Their typical chemical nominal % composition is as follows: 0.08 C, 0.25 O, 0.03 N, and 0.03 Fe. Their mechanical properties are: yield KSI minimum/maximum: 40/65, tensile KSI minimum: 50, and % elongation minimum: 20.

The Ti6Al4V-Grade 5 or titanium aluminum vanadium alloy sheets are available for sale starting from thickness of 0.4 mm to 3.0 mm. Ti6Al4V-Grade 5 sheets weigh between two and 14 kilograms per square meter. This titanium grade sheet has the following nominal % chemical composition: 0.08 C, 0.20 O, 0.05 N, 6.0 Al, and 4.0 V. Its mechanical properties grade is: yield KSI minimum/maximum: 120, tensile KSI minimum: 130, and % elongation minimum: 10.

Titanium Sheet Uses 

Marine and aerospace 

Titanium has high tensile strength and excellent resistance to fatigue, crack, temperatures, and corrosion, so it is commonly used in the manufacture of armor plating, aircraft, missiles, naval ships, and spacecraft. It is alloyed with nickel, zirconium, vanadium, aluminum, and other elements to be utilized in making fire walls, helicopter exhaust ducts, hydraulic systems, and other critical structural components.

Medical 

Titanium is non-toxic so it is widely-used in various medical applications such as dental implants, joint replacements, and other surgical implements.

Architecture

Because of its rigidity and strength, titanium is used in many architectural applications, such as in the construction of the Yuri Gagarin memorial in Moscow, the Cerritos Millennium Library in North America, and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao in Europe.
