Titanium alloys in general have a mixture of titanium and small amounts other elements like aluminium and vanadium. The Titanium Gr 2 Stud Bolts are made of such alloy combination, which show very high tensile strength and toughness even at extreme temperatures. Similar to other titanium based bolts, their prominent feature is the strength to weight ratio. They exhibit extraordinary corrosion resistance to high chloride environments. Their ability to withstand extreme temperatures is to be appreciated. The grade 2 titanium alloy is stronger than grade 1 and has similar corrosion resistance properties. They show good resistance to stress corrosion cracking, crevice corrosion and pitting.
They are typically used in applications where high strength is required and at the same time weight becomes a counting factor. They are popularly used in orthopaedic and dentistry applications to make implants and prosthesis. They are also found to be used in other highly sterile environments. These stud blots are used in airframes and aircrafts engine parts where weight becomes a source of concern. They are popular in chemical and marine industries and are also used in heat exchangers.
