Grade 25 (R56403) Titanium

Grade 25 titanium is a titanium alloy formulated for primary forming into wrought products. Cited properties are appropriate for the annealed condition. R56403 is the UNS number for this material. Additionally, the ASTM designation is Titanium Grade 25.

It has a moderately high heat capacity among wrought titaniums. In addition, it has a moderately low melting temperature and a moderately high embodied energy.

The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare grade 25 titanium to: wrought titaniums (top), all titanium alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.
