Beta titanium alloys provide useful combinations of physical and mechanical properties, as well as a wide range of processing options and generally good corrosion properties. Throughout the past several decades, many β alloys have been researched, yet only a handful of these currently enjoy commercial production. While the primary applications continue to be in the aerospace market, β alloys have demonstrated usefulness in other arenas. This article provides a quick reference guide for a large variety of common and not-so-common β titanium alloys. The information provided includes chemical composition, production status, mill product forms, applications, heat treatment, fabrication, corrosion resistance, physical properties, and mechanical properties.
