Titanium Grade 5 (6Al-4V) is perhaps the most commonly used titanium alloy. Titanium 6Al-4V has a very good strength-to-density ratio and is also significantly stronger than the commercially pure grades. These properties mean it is used extensively in the aerospace industry. It has good bio-compatibility with human bones and tissue making it useful for both medical applications and jewelry. The ELI (Extra-Low Interstitial) grade is used in the production of medical implants.

TA28 is a higher tensile version of 6AL-4V and is generally used in the manufacture of fasteners. It has a tensile strength requirement (after heat treating) of 1100-1300 Mpa. The limited ruling section is 20mm.
