What is TC4 (Ti6Al4V) Titanium Alloy Material
Russia and Ukraine is an important exporters of oil, natural gas, metals, fertilizers, rare gases and other industrial raw materials. Affected by the further intensification of the tension of the war, the global market has become more worried about the supply of the Ti6Al4V Powder, and panic spreads in the futures market. Prices of commodities such as aluminum and nickel are at recent highs on concerns that supplies will fall. Russia accounts for 49 percent of global exports of nickel, 42 percent of palladium, 26 percent of aluminum and 13 percent of platinum, and is a significant exporter of steel and copper. Palladium is an important metal for sensors and memory. In addition, Russia is the world's largest exporter of nitrogen fertilizer, the second largest exporter of potash fertilizer, and the third-largest exporter of phosphate fertilizer. Ukraine is also an important producer of nitrogen fertilizer. Russia's natural gas supply also has a significant impact on the global fertilizer industry and Ti6Al4V Powder industry, especially in Europe. The price of the Ti6Al4V Powder will also fluctuate to some extent. Russia carries out crude gas separation, and Ukraine is responsible for refined exports. Ukraine supplies 70% of the world's neon, 40% of krypton and 30% of xenon. These three gases are the materials used to make chips.
What is TC4(Ti6Al4V)?
TC4(Ti6Al4V) alloy is a medium strength α-β type two-phase titanium alloy
containing 6% α-stabilizing element AI and 4% β-stabilizing element V. This
alloy has excellent comprehensive properties and has obtained the most extensive
applications in the aviation and aerospace industries. The long-term working
temperature of the alloy can reach 400 ℃. In the aviation industry, it is mainly
used to manufacture the fan and compressor disks and blades of the engine, as
well as the important load-bearing components such as beams, joints and
bulkheads in the aircraft structure.
The main semi-finished products of TC4 titanium alloy are bars, forgings,
thick plates, thin plates, profiles and wires, etc. The alloy is mainly used in
the annealed state, and can also be strengthened by solution aging treatment,
but the hardened cross section is generally not more than 25mm.
The alloy has good process plasticity and superplasticity, and is suitable
for various pressure forming. The alloy can also be welded and machined in
TC4(Ti6Al4V) heat treatment system
Plate: 700-850℃, 0.5-2h, air cooling; bar and forging: 700-800℃, 1-2h, air
2. Vacuum annealing
700-800°C, 0.5-2h, the furnace is cooled to below 200°C to allow air cooling.
The absolute pressure in the furnace should be no more than 0.09Pa.
3. Solution treatment
910-940℃, 0.5-2h, water quenching.
520-550°C, 2-4h, air cooling.
5. Stress relief annealing
Complete stress relief annealing: 600-650℃, 1-4h, air cooling; incomplete
stress relief annealing: 500-600℃, 0.5-3h, air cooling. Stress relief annealing
can be carried out in an air furnace or a vacuum furnace.
