Titanium Alloy 3Al-2.5V (Grade 9) is a medium strength alloy with good weldability and fabricability for mildly reducing to mildly oxidizing media. It is a compromise between the facility of welding and manufacturing of the pure grades and the high strength of Grade 5. It has great corrosion resistance and can be used extensively in aerospace, chemical processing, medical, marine, and automotive. Typically this alloy is supplied in two Conditions Annealed and CWSR ( Cold Worked & Stress Relieved).
Use of titanium in sport was the oldest and so far the largest segment of use of titanium in consumer applications. The reason why titanium is popular in sport equipment is simple - it provides superior to every other metal ratio of weight to strength. Use of titanium in bicycles was the first major application of titanium in sport equipment and goes back to approximately 30 years ago. Major use is tubing for the frames; material used is Ti 3Al-2.5V (ASTM Grade 9). Other parts made from titanium alloys are brakes, cassettes, seat springs.
Applications : Bicycle frame, Honeycombs, bellows, tubing for hydraulic systems, golf club shafts, tennis racquets.
