Grade 6 Ti-5Al-2.5Sn Alloy (UNS R54520)

Introduction

Titanium alloys are light weight and have excellent corrosion resistance, very high tensile strength and toughness. These properties remain unaffected to a great extent even at extreme temperatures. The durability of these alloys make them viable for several industries such as aerospace, military, automobile, consumer electronics, and sports equipment.

Grade 6 Ti-5Al-2.5Sn alloy has high service temperature of 480°C (896°F), medium strength, and excellent weldability and fabricability. This alloy has good oxidation resistance and microstructure stability; however it is not heat-treatable.

The following sections will discuss in detail about grade 6 Ti-5Al-2.5Sn alloy.

Fabrication and Heat Treatment

Machinability

Grade 6 Ti-5Al-2.5Sn alloy is hard to machine but can be successfully done using slow speeds, high coolant flow, and high feed rates. Tooling should be performed using tungsten carbide designations C1-C4 or cobalt type high speed tools.

Forming

Grade 6 Ti-5Al-2.5Sn alloy can be hot or cold formed using power brake, hydropress, stretch or drop hammer methods.

Welding

Welding of grade 6 Ti-5Al-2.5Sn alloy is rated as good.

Annealing

Annealing of this material can be performed by heating to 718-843°C (1325-1550° F) for 4 h and then air cooled. In case intermediate stress relieving is required, the material has to be heated to 538-650 °C (1000-1200° F) for 1 h, and then air cooled.

Forging

Forging can be performed at 1010-1038°C (1850-1900°F) and completed at 954-1010°C (1750-1850°F).

Hot Working

Hot working enhances the overall ductility of the material.

Cold Working

Cold working features of this material is same as that of a moderately tempered austenitic stainless steel. Post-work annealing is recommended to re-attain favorable performance properties.

Applications

Grade 6 Ti-5Al-2.5Sn alloy is used in the following application areas:

·         Gas turbine engine casings and rings

·         Aerospace structural parts, aircraft engine and airframe.

·         Chemical processing equipment
