The strongest 3D printable material, titanium offers good dimensional accuracy and fine details.
Titanium is a lightweight and strong metal known for its excellent corrosion resistance and biocompatibility. It has a wide range of applications in various industries, including aerospace, automotive, medical, and sports equipment.
Here are the general technical properties of titanium:
|Density||4.5 - 4.6 g/cm³|
|Tensile strength||240 - 550 MPa|
|Tensile modulus||105 - 120 GPa|
|Tensile elongation||20 - 30%|
|Thermal Conductivity||21.9 W/(m·K)|
It's important to note that the specific properties of titanium can vary depending on the alloy composition and heat treatment. Titanium alloys are commonly used to enhance specific properties such as strength, ductility, and heat resistance. Some popular titanium alloys include Ti-6Al-4V (Grade 5), Ti-6Al-4V ELI (Grade 23), and commercially pure titanium (Grade 1 to 4).
The choice of titanium grade and alloy will depend on the specific application requirements. Titanium has excellent strength-to-weight ratio, high corrosion resistance, and biocompatibility, making it suitable for a wide range of applications such as aircraft components, medical implants, chemical processing equipment, and sports equipment.
