# Grade 32 (R55111) Titanium

Grade 32 titanium is a titanium alloy formulated for primary forming into wrought products. Cited properties are appropriate for the annealed condition. R55111 is the UNS number for this material. Additionally, the ASTM designation is Titanium Grade 32.

It has a moderately low melting temperature among the wrought titaniums in the database.

The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare grade 32 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.
