Stronger than pure titanium, titanium Grade 5 is alloyed with aluminum, vanadium, and iron to create a durable, lightweight metal. It’s designed to withstand even the harshest of environments, from temperatures exceeding 800°F to corrosive seawater. Titanium Grade 5 is built for your highest-risk projects.
Our titanium is non-magnetic, non-toxic, and non-allergenic, which has led to its increasing use in the medical field. Despite being as strong as steel, titanium is about 40 percent lighter, which, along with its resistance to erosion, makes it an essential structural metal for aerospace engineers.
Titanium is also formidable in its resistance to corrosion by both water and most chemicals. This resistance is achieved by forming a thin layer of titanium dioxide on its surface that is extremely difficult for these materials to penetrate. Ensuring that when you use it in your next project, corrosion will be the last thing on your mind.
One of titanium’s most useful properties is its high melting point, which is about 400°F above the melting point of steel, and approximately 2000°F above that of aluminum. So it’s a good fit for working in an array of high-temperature situations.
The strength of titanium is twice that of low-carbon “mild” steel, and about 3x the strength of aluminum (assuming similar thicknesses). That’s why it’s our strongest metal in-house and why our aerospace engineers turn to it for their more advanced projects.
Couple that with SendCutSend’s proprietary fabrication methods and you’ve got one of the strongest metals in the known universe in your corner, for less.
