Titanium Ti64 is a Ti64 alloy. This well-known light alloy is characterized by having excellent mechanical properties and corrosion resistance combined with low specific weight and bio compatibility. The ELI version (extra-low interstitials) has particularly high purity.
AlSi10Mg is a typical casting alloy with good casting properties and is used for aluminum sintering cast parts with thin walls and complex geometry. The alloying elements silicon and magnesium lead to high strength and hardness.
Stainless Steel 17-4
Stainless Steel GP1 is a stainless steel. Its chemical composition corresponds to US classification 17-4.
Properties: Good mechanical properties, excellent ductility
Inconel Alloy 625:
Oxidation- and corrosion-resistant, ideal for extreme environments subjected to high pressure and kinetic energy. This material has high temperature strength, attractive for high-temperature applications where aluminum and steel would yield to creep due to the temperature. It is commonly used for marine components where exposure to brine and large mechanical stresses are encountered. It is often used in the aerospace, chemical and energy markets, with applications including gas turbine blades, filtration and separation, heat exchanger and molding processes, seals, and combustors, as well as turbocharger rotors and seals, performance exhausting pipes, electric submersible well pump motor shafts, high temperature fasteners, chemical processing and pressure vessels, heat exchanger tubing, steam generators and core components in nuclear pressurized water reactors.
