TIMETAL®407 (Ti-407) is a novel titanium alloy formulated as a medium strength, highly ductile alloy offering a range of manufacturing cost reduction opportunities. It can be used as a direct replacement for Ti-6Al-4V or Ti-3Al-2.5V alloys, particularly in applications where energy absorption during fracture or HCF endurance are the key design criteria. The effect of thermo-mechanical processing on microstructure has been characterised and the room temperature high cycle, low cycle and dwell cycle fatigue properties of Ti-407 containing 30-40% primary alpha volume fraction are presented and discussed. These results are compared with data generated from Ti-6Al-4V processed to provide a similar but non-standard microstructure and demonstrate that Ti-407 shows superior HCF endurance strength, despite having a significantly lower tensile and yield strength.
