# Transformed-Beta Condition Grade 9 Titanium

Transformed-beta grade 9 titanium is grade 9 titanium in the transformed beta condition. The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare transformed-beta grade 9 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.
