Grade 5 titanium is stronger than grade 2 titanium and offers formability and corrosion resistance
Meets MIL-SPEC T-9047 and AMS 4928 specifications
Unpolished (mill) surface has no finish
Annealed after shaping to modify the metal's properties
The grade 5 titanium round rod is annealed and unpolished, meets United States Military Standard MIL-SPEC T-9047 and SAE Aerospace Material Specifications AMS 4928 standards, and has a standard tolerance. The grade 5 titanium alloy, also known as Ti-6Al-4V, is stronger than grade 2 titanium and has both formability and corrosion resistance. 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.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I ordered this Titanium rod to use as a cello pin. My steel pin was too short for me. The Ti pin is extremely tough and quite elastic, which I like for playing. Titanium grade 5 is indestructible and so hard I had trouble cutting it to length with my hacksaw. The weight is about half that of a steel pin, a significant reduction. The cost is reasonable as no additional rework is needed. Check the diameter of your steel pin before ordering.
