What is TC4 (Ti6Al4V) Titanium Alloy Material
The U.S. and its allies plan to impose sanctions on more Russian industries and supply chains.
The US government representatives recently visited Europe to consult with allies on strengthening and enforcing sanctions to punish Russia. They also plan to take action to disrupt their critical supply chains.
The US government claims that the sanctions imposed on Russia since the invasion began on February 24 have proved extremely effective, plunging Russia into a financial crisis. The sanctions include a freeze on the Russian central bank's foreign exchange assets, a ban on hard currency transactions by major Russian banks and wealthy individuals, and export restrictions on advanced semiconductors and other technologies. The sanctions have weakened the Russian economy and left the Kremlin with fewer resources.
The volatile international political situations will continue to affect the markets and prices of many commodities like the Ti6Al4V Powder.
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.

With the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the market is increasingly worried about the potential disruption of Russia's energy supply. Geopolitical premiums have pushed up the price of crude oil and natural gas, and the energy price is expected to remain high in the short term. Affected by this, the market price of the Ti6Al4V Powder may continue to rise.
