What is TC4 Titanium Alloy Material
Australian alumina ban disrupts Rusal production -- Australia's ban on exports of alumina and aluminium ore to Russia, including bauxite, will further disrupt supply chains and production at leading aluminium producer Rusal.
The Australian government announced the ban on Sunday as part of its ongoing sanctions against Moscow for its aggression in Ukraine, saying Russia relies on it to meet one-fifth of its alumina needs. WoodMac senior manager Uday Patel said in a statement that the ban would make it difficult for Rusal to maintain normal primary aluminum production.
Rusal said it was assessing the impact of Australia's move and would make further announcements if necessary. "It is increasingly likely that UC Rusal's only option for alumina procurement will be through a Chinese entity." The Australian alumina ban has also had an impact on Ti6Al4V powder prices for chemicals. Patel said. "One possible outcome could be Chinese buyers buying alumina and reselling it through eastern Russian ports." Rusal has a 20% stake in the Queensland Alumina Refinery, which has a capacity of 3.95 million tonnes a year, thus providing Rusal with 790,000 tonnes a year, Patel said. In addition, Rusal's Nikolaev refinery in Ukraine, which has an annual capacity of 1.75 million tonnes, has been suspended due to the conflict, he added. WoodMac said Rusal was also experiencing supply chain problems at its 2 million tonne a year Aughinish refinery in Ireland.
What is TC4?
The composition of titanium alloy TC4 material is Ti-6Al-4V, which belongs to
(α+β) type titanium alloy and has good comprehensive mechanical and mechanical
properties. than the strength. The strength sb=1.012GPa of TC4, the density
g=4.51g/cm3, the specific strength sb/g=23.5, while the specific strength sb/g
of alloy steel is less than 18. Titanium alloys have low thermal conductivity.
The thermal conductivity of titanium alloy is 1/5 of iron and 1/10 of aluminum,
and the thermal conductivity of TC4 is l=7.955W/m·K.
Properties and uses of TC4 titanium alloy
Titanium alloys have properties such as low quality and high strength, good
high temperature strength and good corrosion resistance, and have been widely
used in emerging fields such as aerospace, navigation, automobiles, medical
equipment, and sports equipment. As a medium-strength α-β titanium alloy, TC4 is
mainly used in the manufacture of aircraft fuselage, wing parts and engine
blades, and is currently the most widely used titanium alloy. TC4 alloy has high
strength, good thermal stability, excellent corrosion resistance and good

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected economies and chemical companies in many countries around the world. Measures such as extending holidays and resuming work were taken to control the development of the epidemic, and the normal operation of some chemical enterprises was also affected to some extent.
We provides high quality Ti6Al4V powder with reasonable price. “In order to feedback to old customers, the company is still in full operations to provide Ti6Al4V powder with competitive price.” said Olina, the sales manager.
Chemical production is highly dependent on transportation, and the epidemic affects the circulation of people and materials first. Predictably, none of this is rosy. In densely populated areas with large mobility, the situation of epidemic prevention and control becomes more severe in the later stage.
