Titanium 6AL-2SN-4ZR-2MO (Ti6242) Sheet
Titanium 6242 is ideal to cut a sheet the same way a plate would be cut for application in many projects. Sheets, however, may be useful for bending and shaping in a way to create a skin on an aircraft or other vessel components, for example, as this form of the alloy - the form of a titanium 6AL-2SN-4ZR-2MO sheet - is more likely to be the most flexible and ductile out of the other products out on the market today.

The history of titanium alloys generally starts in the 1950s. In particular, the Watertown Arsenal during this time began to research the use of titanium alloys in armors. The Watertown Arsenal would then later become part of the Army Research Laboratory. The 6AL-4V alloy that was generated was later classified as Grade 5 and was continually refined to produce other grades, including this Ti 6-2-4-2. By the end of 1947, there had only been about two tons of titanium produced annually. With some government incentives and drive for more aerospace development, that number reached more than two million pounds annually in 1953. It was perfect timing, at the dawn of the space age, and soon mass-production became the norm for not just this particular line of titanium alloy or even metal for that matter. Eventually, different specifications were generated for the industries that use this alloy product. Those specifications are codified often under AMS and MIL-T codes, amongst others.
Chemistry of Titanium 6AL-2SN-4ZR-2MOThe chemistry of this alloy consists of Molybdenum (Mo), Aluminum (Al), Zirconium (Zr), Tin (Sn), and Titanium (Ti). There are specifications for percentage by weight of these elements, such as Molybdenum (6%), Aluminum (2%), Zirconium (4%), Tin (2%), and Titanium (the balance). 6AL-2SN-4AZ-2MO has a density of 4.54 g/cm3 (or 0.164 lb/in3). The melting point is approximately 3100 F. It has a Rockwell C hardness of 34, a 13% elongation at break, a shear modulus of 44.5GPa (or 6450ksi), an elastic modulus of 118 GPa (or 17100ksi), and a Poisson's ratio of 0.325. This alloy also has a yield strength of 1050 MPa (or 152000 psi) and ultimate tensile strength of 1110 MPa (or 161000 psi).
Our Titanium 6AL-2SN-4ZR-2MO Products
At AMC, we offer a variety of Ti 6242 products such as plates, sheets, and bars. Many of these products are available under a variety of specifications. We list our products under military specifications, such as MIL-T-9046 and MIL-T-9047, but we also cross-reference AMS standards, such as AMS 4975, AMS 4976, and AMS 6905. We also have the specification of DMS 2275.
