Titanium can be used for a wide range of metal parts, from tubing to bolts to fasteners. They are essential in both aviation and aerospace. Steel is the primary fastener material used in the aerospace field with the most common titanium alloy used being TI-6Al-4V. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of titanium fasteners, what they are used for, and why you should use them for your next project.
Titanium exhibits higher tensile strength than other materials, even at increasing temperatures. It is also extremely resistant to seawater and galvanic corrosion, making it ideal for many aeronautical and naval applications. They are typically created either to International Organization for Standardization specifications or Deutsches Institut für Normung specifications, or both.
Titanium fasteners are used in a limited number of applications where their high strength to weight ratio, excellent resistance to stress corrosion cracking, high corrosion resistance, and good fatigue strength are desired. Some of those include:
