The Ti6Al4V GR23 ELI alloy is a high-purity titanium alloy distinguished by its low levels of interstitial impurities like oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen. Its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio makes it ideal for automotive and aerospace applications requiring lightweight structures. Enhanced ductility and fracture toughness, as well as strong corrosion resistance and biocompatibility, expand its use to surgical and dental applications.
The IN625 alloy is primarily composed of nickel, enriched with up to 23% chromium and 10% molybdenum, among other subsidiary elements. A key feature of this alloy is the inclusion of niobium, which synergistically interacts with molybdenum to confer both high strength and toughness in its annealed state. IN625 finds extensive utility across diverse industrial applications, excelling particularly in environments like seawater where robust corrosion resistance is imperative. IN625 also has a resistance to high-temperatures shares similarities with IN718, an alloy valued for its exceptional tensile, creep, and rupture strength properties.
AlSi10Mg is composed of aluminium, enriched with up to 10% silicon, along with traces of magnesium, iron, and other minor elements. Silicon contributes to the alloy’s enhanced hardness and strength through the formation of Mg2Si precipitates.
