TITANIUM AND TITANIUM ALLOYS
After an extensive research and development programme for the manufacture of titanium bars, together with a high technological level in plant and equipment, Valbruna has achieved a carefully controlled manufacturing process to ensure the highest quality product.

Main properties of Titanium alloys:
  • High Mechanical Strength
  • Good Fatigue Strength
  • Perfect Bio-Compatibility
  • Non-Magnetic
  • Good Heart Transfer
  • Low Thermal Expansion
  • Low Elastic Modulus
  • High Specific Strength
  • High Corrosion / Erosion-Corrosion Resistance

Titanium, because of its physical, chemical and mechanical porperties, is among the most interesting materials for constructing the products of the future.
  The most versatile Titanium grades can be found in Valbruna's production range:

Ti Gr.2 Combines good tensile strength and cold forming properties.
Ti Gr.4 Is the commercially pure Titanium possessing the highest tensile strength properties.
Ti Gr.5 The most versatile Titanium alloy due to its excellent combination of characteristics. It behaves well in forging and has excellent ductility and toughness in the annealed condition. Because of its low sensibility to notching effects and its excellent resistance to cavitation, Ti Gr.5 is suitable for any mechanical application.
Ti Gr.5 ELI Is the Titanium alloy used in biomedical implants, because of its extra low level of interstital elements obtained through a double-remelting in the VAR furnace.
