This alpha-beta alloy is the workhorse alloy of the titanium industry. Titanium grade 5 has good tensile properties at ambient temperature and a useful creep resistance up to 300°C. Resistance to fatigue and crack propagation is excellent. Like most titanium alloys, Grade 5 has outstanding resistance to corrosion in most natural and many industrial process environments. The ability to age harden this alloy makes it a good choice for such applications as springs and fasteners.
