Unique for its strength, lightness of weight and corrosion resistance

Titanium fasteners are best known for being strong, lightweight, and corrosion resistant. They are critical to many industries including chlor alkali, marine, off-shore oil & gas, desalination, medical, and pulp and paper.  Grade 2 and 5 are the most commonly used grades of titanium screws:
•  Grade 2 (UNS R50400 / 3.7035) :Commercially pure titanium and the most common grade for screws.
•  Grade 5 (UNS R56400 / 3.7165): Superior strength-to-weight ratio for a unique combination of corrosion and high strength.

Corrosion Resistance
Perhaps the most notable attribute of titanium fasteners are their superior corrosion resistance to salt water / seawater. Titanium screws have the unique ability to rapidly regrow their protective passive layer in the presence of oxygen, giving them unparalleled resistance to salt water environments.
•  Proven resistance in decades of polluted seawater
•  Usable in ocean depths of a mile beneath the surface
•  Resistant to high velocity, rapidly moving currents as well as stagnant seawater
•  Not affected by the presence of sulfides in seawater
•  Ideal for sea splash and tide zones
•  Seawater resistant to temperatures as high as 500°F (260°C)

Chloride, Chlorine & Other Media
Similar to salt water, titanium’s strong, protective oxide film which regenerates in oxygen makes it extremely resistant to oxidizing environments, and chlorides solutions, including hypochlorites, chlorates, perchlorates, sodium chlorite, and chlorine dioxide. This protection holds true as long as moisture is present – which can be as little as 50ppm of moisture. Oxidizing environments in the absence of water can cause titanium to rapidly corrode or even ignite. Titanium screws are not resistant to reducing media and acids (see chart).

Lightweight Strength
Not only are titanium grade 5 fasteners extremely strong, offering 148 ksi UTS and 138ksi yield they are also incredibly light. With a density of 4.51 g /cm3, titanium has on of the the highest strength-to-weight ratios available to industry. Titanium Grade 5 screws are 4 times stronger than 316 stainless steel at nearly half the weight. This makes titanium fasteners ideal for applications that require both lightness of weight and excellent strength such medical, military and sporting goods.

Which Grade is Best for Your Application?

Titanium Frequently Asked Question of the Week

High Strength Titanium Grade 5 Compared to Monel K500

Q: How does Monel K500 Compared to Titanium Grade 5?

A: Both Monel and titanium will both offer excellent resistance to saltwater conditions. Titanium will perform slightly better than Monel in stagnant seawater – but this is minuscule.

The main differences are strength and applications. In terms of strength, Monel K500 will offer about 160ksi of tensile strength compared to grade 5 titanium bolts 148ksi. – slightly higher. Monel K500 bolts are also more commonly used by the military for saltwater conditions and can be quoted per MIL Spec.

In comparison, titanium grade 5 per spec TI 6AL-4V can be used in medical applications for inertness, biocompatibility and strength.
