3.7165 – TiAl6V4 – Titan Grade 5

Titanium Grade 23 is the ELI (Extra Low Interstitials) version of Ti Grade 5, the most commonly-used Ti alloy in the world. Titanium Grade 23 is a VAR-fused alloy. The contents of interstitial elements and Fe are deliberately kept low. The material displays good corrosion resistance, especially in media containing chlorine. When the highest requirements must be met, e.g. for implants, grade 23 is used. The extremely good corrosion resistance in sea water and a marine environment explains why this material is particularly interesting for maritime applications.
