UNS R50250, W.Nr. 3.7025, (99.8 Ti)
Titanium Grade 1 is the softest, unalloyed grade of titanium with the lowest strength and highest ductility. It’s weldable, cold formability and an impact-resistant alloy. Titanium Grade 1 has good resistance to mildly reducing conditions and very good resistance to strong oxidizing environment with or without chlorides. The alloy is used for a variety of applications, including for plate heat exchangers, chemical equipment, chlorine production, desalination and anodes.
Recommended filler metal for welding is Titanium AWS A5.16-90 ERTi-1.
Does titanium come in different grades?
Titanium is available in commercially pure grades and titanium alloy grades. Alloys can be alpha titanium, beta titanium, or alpha-beta titanium. Alpha and beta are the two different phases of titanium. The commercially pure grades are grades 1 through 4.
What is the difference between Grade 1 and Grade 2 titanium?
Grade 2 titanium is called the “workhorse” of the commercially pure titanium industry, thanks to its varied usability and wide availability. It shares many of the same qualities as Grade 1 titanium, but it is slightly stronger. Both are equally corrosion resistant.
What is Grade 2 titanium used for?
Typical applications for Grade 2 titanium include oil & gas components, reaction and pressure vessels, tubing or piping systems, heat exchangers, liners, ﬂue-gas desulphurization systems and many other industrial components.
