As the world deals with potential supply shortages, oil prices are soaring again, with more dramatic spikes and sudden drops expected.
For consumers, that means more expensive gas for longer - prices at the pump remain above $4 a gallon. For the economy, that means more inflation. In addition to the pressure on consumers, any business that relies on oil -- from airlines and truck drivers to chemical companies and plastics producers -- will face higher costs.
Mr Pickering estimates that 2m to 3m barrels a day of Russian oil shipped by water are frozen out of the market with no direct buyers. Due to the soaring oil price, the price of the titanium alloy TC4 material in the chemical industry will also
be greatly affected. He said China and India are continuing to buy Russian crude. "I'm sure there will be others willing to take on more over time," he said. Mr Pickering said he did not expect oil to return to $130 a barrel, but added that it could happen. West Texas Intermediate for April settled 7% higher at $112.12 a barrel on Monday.
Francisco Branch, head of commodities and derivatives at Bank of America, said the US market was ready for cyclical price spikes and price swings in the product name.
The titanium alloy TC4 material composition is Ti-6Al-4V, which belongs to the (α+β) type titanium alloy and has excellent comprehensive mechanical properties. Greater specific strength. The strength of TC4 sb=1.012GPa, the density g=4.51g/cm3, the particular strength sb/g=23.5, and the particular strength sb/g of alloy steel is less than 18. Titanium alloy has low thermal conductivity. The thermal conductivity of the titanium alloy is 1/5 that of iron and 1/10 that of aluminum. The thermal conductivity of TC4 is l=7.955W/m·K.
Coefficient of linear expansion=8.6*10-6℃(0-100℃), specific heat=0.612j/g·℃. The modulu of elasticity of titanium alloy is low. The modulus of elasticity of TC4 is E=110GPa, which is about 1/2 of steel, so it is easy to deform when titanium alloy is processed. Its Poisson's ratio is 0.34. The surface modification of TC4 (Ti-6Al-4V) and TA7 (Ti-5Al-2.5Sn) titanium alloys adopts two implantation schemes. Tests show that after ion implantation of titanium alloys, the microhardness is increased and significantly reduced. The sliding friction coefficient is improved, and the wear resistance is effectively improved. To explore the modification mechanism, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) analysis was performed on the injected and uninjected samples, and satisfactory results were obtained.
TC4 titanium alloy is one of the most widely used titanium alloys. It has high strength and excellent corrosion resistance, but it is challenging to see seamless titanium tubes made of TC4 in the transparent titanium tube market at home and abroad. TC4 titanium material is mainly plate material, and TC4 pipe material on the market is primarily a high-strength thick-walled pipe produced by hot extrusion or oblique perforation.
The main reason for this situation is the high strength of TC4 titanium alloy and the difficulty of cold rolling forming. To solve the critical technology of TC4 seamless tube cold-rolling forming, a series of researches were carried out jointly by schools and enterprises. For example, the direct cold-rolling forming process produces high-strength titanium alloy pipes, which not only dramatically reduce the production cost but also meets the requirements for high-performance titanium alloy applications.

Prior to the impact of COVID-19 on the chemicals and materials industry and the price of the titanium alloy TC4 material, many industry observers expected low to flat growth in 2021 in all regions outside Asia, with many countries seeing slower growth compared to recent years. Operational excellence has long been a hallmark of the chemical industry, and many companies are financially able to withstand short-term dips in end-market demand due to rapid leverage from reduced capex on hand.
The analysis shows that, whatever the final course of the pandemic, we can expect the inevitable long-term effects. Workplaces are expected to slowly return to pre-COVID-19 practices. Companies investing in enterprise-wide digital initiatives saw these "payoffs" in the early pandemic environment.
TRUNNANO provides high quality titanium alloy TC4 material with reasonable price. “In order to feedback to old customers, the company is still in full operations to provide titanium alloy TC4 material with competitive price.” said Amy Gao, sales manager of TRUNNANO.
