Grade 23 titanium offers high toughness and moderate wear resistance, along with corrosion resistance and high strength
Meets ASTM F136 specifications
Unpolished (mill) surface has no finish
Annealed after shaping to modify the metal's properties
The grade 23 titanium round rod is annealed and unpolished, meets American Society for Testing and Materials International ASTM F136 specifications, and has a standard tolerance. The grade 23 titanium alloy, also known as Ti 6Al-4V ELI, offers high toughness and moderate wear resistance, along with corrosion resistance, high strength, and good formability. The material has been annealed, a method of heating and cooling metal to modify its properties, such as increasing its formability and toughness or decreasing its strength, after it has been shaped.
Titanium is a corrosion-resistant material that has one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios of all metals. It can be alloyed with elements such as aluminum, vanadium, iron, and molybdenum to increase properties such as strength, corrosion resistance, and toughness.
Tensile strength, used to indicate the material's overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Corrosion resistance describes the material's ability to prevent deterioration caused by atmosphere, moisture, or other medium. Toughness describes the material's ability to absorb energy before breaking, while hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Formability indicates how easily the material can be permanently shaped.
