3Al-2.5V alloy (aka Grade 9 or UNS R56320) is lightweight and strong giving it a high strength-to-weight ratio to reduce weight variables. This grade is normally supplied in either the annealed or cold worked and stress relieved condition. 3AL-2.5V titanium is a type of titanium alloy that contains 3% aluminum and 2.5% vanadium by weight. It is also commonly known as Grade 9 titanium, and is a popular material in aerospace and medical applications due to its high strength-to-weight ratio and biocompatibility.
The addition of aluminum and vanadium to pure titanium results in an alloy with improved strength and toughness, while still maintaining good corrosion resistance and weldability. Grade 9 titanium is often used in aircraft components such as landing gear, engine parts, and structural components due to its high strength and resistance to fatigue.
In medical applications, Grade 9 titanium is often used in implants due to its biocompatibility and ability to bond with bone tissue. It is also used in prosthetics and other medical devices due to its strength and corrosion resistance.
Overall, 3AL-2.5V titanium is a versatile and useful material that finds application in a wide range of industries due to its unique combination of properties.
A major product in support of our Defense and Military operations, 3Al-2.5V Titanium alloy was developed for hydraulic and fuel systems for many aircraft over the years. It is commonly used to support military aircraft and spacecraft as well as commercial aircraft around the globe. Another application for 3Al-2.5V alloy is the use for bicycle frames. The high strength and light weight characteristics are ideal for this ever-growing industry.
This tubing is readily welded by the standard gas tungsten arc process with inert gas shielding and by the use of automatic welding tools with built-in gas purge chambers. Machine settings similar to those used for stainless steels are used when welding Ti-3Al-2.5V tubing.
