Used in the aerospace industry, Titanium Grade 5 socket cap screws are tough, able to support a wide variety of applications.
Known for their lightweight strength, Titanium 5 socket cap screws are twice as strong as Titanium Grade 2 socket cap screws. These socket cap screws are resistant to seawater up to 500°F and are shown to last almost two decades in tests of polluted seawater. Additionally, they show no signs of pitting and crevice corrosion even when one mile below the surface. The Titanium Grade 5 socket cap screws are also resistant to erosion up to a velocity of 120 feet/second lending them well to the aerospace and aircraft industries.
Titanium Grade 5 socket cap screws resist attack by pure hydrocarbons and most chlorinated and fluorinated hydrocarbons provided there is no acid contamination. They are also fully resistant to solutions of chlorides, hypochlorites, chlorates, perchlorates and chlorine dioxide making them ideal for the paper industry.
Titanium Grade 5 is 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium. Its strength-to-weight ratio is four times stronger than 316 stainless steel at nearly half the weight.
