After a few months of waiting, today we received a delivery of special titanium bars. The alloy known as 6Al4V contains aluminium and vanadium. Usage: prototypes for the racing and aerospace industries. In particular, 6Al4V is used extensively for the Boeing 787 aircraft.
Titanium was originally discovered by amateur scientist William Gregor
in 1791 as a reddish brown clay he could not identify. In 1795, Austrian
chemist Martin Heinrich Klaproth identified titanium as an entirely new
element and named it Titanium after the Greek Gods known as Titans. The
Titans were strong and giant deities in Greek mythology and is the root
of many words, such as titanic, associated with great size and
Titanium is 30% stronger than steel, but is nearly 50% lighter. It is
60% heavier than aluminium, but twice as strong. In horology, high
corrosion resistance is a valuable characteristic. After anodising, it’s
tenacious oxide film resists many corrosive materials, particularly
Our intention is to use 6Al4V to make watch screws for NH2 Timascus.
Green, gold, pink, blue, and purple screws coming to your NH2 soon!
