Titanium round bars are one of the most sought after titanium products at thyssenkrupp Materials UK. However, the making of titanium bars requires a far more automated process than the making of block and plate forms.
The bars come in over forty different grades, with the most common ones being grades 5 and 2. The bar comes in varying diameters of up to 14 inches.
Grades of Titanium Bar
Titanium bars come in multiple grades that vary in strength and resistance. At thyssenkrupp Materials UK, we offer titanium bars in the purest titanium forms of Grades 1 – 4, which are also the most durable. We stock titanium alloy bars that include grades 6-4, 6-2-4-2, 6-4 ELI and 6-2-4-6 as well.
Grades 2 and 5, which are the most common ones, combine excellent ductility, formability and weldability and are highly reliable metals.
