Description of Titanium Aluminum Alloy
Titanium aluminide, TiAl, is an intermetallic chemical compound.
It is lightweight and resistant to oxidation and heat, however it suffers from low ductility.
The development of TiAl based alloys began about 1970; however the alloys have only been used in these applications since about 2000.
Titanium aluminide has three major intermetallic compounds: gamma TiAl, alpha 2-Ti3Al and TiAl3.
Among the three, gamma TiAl has received the most interest and applications.
Gamma TiAl has excellent mechanical properties and oxidation and corrosion resistance at elevated temperatures (over 600 degrees Celsius).
