Spring Material: Titanium
Extremely Strong & Lightweight
Titanium offers very high strength at low weight. It provides maximum force in a small space. It is both hot and cold “workable.” Titanium has a low torsion modulus and is heat treatable after forming. Its ability to be hot formed, enables the fabrication of larger springs.
Grades / Attributes
Grade 5 and Beta C, which is used extensively in the aerospace industry.
Primarily aerospace including springs for airplane controls and landing gear. Also used for military and automotive applications. Other uses include implantable medical devices and compensator springs for oil and gas applications.
Alternative material for stainless steel or Inconel®. Stainless steel is heavier, but much less expensive. Weight/cost attributes needs to be considered.
Temperature attributes not as good as Inconel®, but superior to stainless steel.
