Titanium Casting Use
Jul 29, 2016

All titanium castings have compositions based on the common wrought alloys. There is no commercial titanium alloy developed strictly for casting applications. This is unusual, because in other metallic systems alloys have been developed specifically as casting alloys, often to overcome certain problems such as poor cast-ability of a wrought-alloy composition. Customers often fail to differentiate between a wrought alloy and cast alloy. No peculiar problems regarding cast-ability or fluidity have been encountered in any of the titanium metals cast to date.

Titanium alloys are classified according to the phases in their microstructure. Alloys that consist mainly of the a phase are called α alloys, whereas those that contain principally the a phase along with small amounts of β-stabilizing elements are termed as nearαtitanium alloys. Alloys that consist of mixtures of phases are classified as α-β alloys. Finally, titanium alloys in which the b phase is stabilized at room temperature after cooling from solution heat treatment are classified as β alloys. Ti-6Al- 4V is the most popular titanium alloy used in the industry worldwide.

Titanium castings are used primarily in three areas of application: aerospace products, marine service and industrial (corrosion) service. Commercially pure titanium (ASTM grade 1, 2 or 3) is used for the vast majority of corrosion applications, where as Ti-6Al-4V is the dominant alloy for aerospace and marine applications.
