NEW COST-EFFECTIVE TITANIUM ALLOY WITH HIGH FRACTURE TOUGHNESS

Aircraft applications requiring high fracture toughness at moderate strength levels are predicted for CORONA-5, a new titanium alloy with the composition Ti-4.5Al-5Mo-1.5Cr. As an economical alternative to conventional alloys, CORONA-5 is said to feature lower processing temperatures, reduced tool and die material costs, improved die and tool life, reduced energy consumption, and lower material control costs.
