DAT52F (Free-cutting titanium alloy) with improved cutting workability

Features

  • Superior machinability compared to conventional titanium alloy. Drilling efficiency can be improved by 50 to 70% when compared to conventional titanium and titanium alloy. For turning, 20 to 30% improvement can be expected when used with carbide tools.
  • Mechanical properties and fatigue strength practically equal to those of conventional titanium alloy. They can, therefore, be easily exchanged when used as components.
  • Corrosion resistance superior to stainless steel and practically same as conventional titaniums.
