This unalloyed titanium has excellent strength-to-weight ratio with good resistance to corrosion. Due to its low thermal expansion, thermal stresses are low. It is widely used in weight-saving structures and also suitable in the medical sector due to its outstanding biocompatibility. This grade of titanium is often used for structural components such as frames, wings, and fuselage. Other common applications include turbine blades, shafts, and fasteners.
