Titanium Sheet - Gr5 (6AL-4V)
Titanium Sheet - Gr5 (6AL-4V)
  (Enlarge)  
  • Description
  • Reviews
• Does your robot need strong and light armor?  (Of course it does!)  Titanium is the #1 choice for armoring combat robots thanks to its high strength-to-weight ratio.
• FingerTech carries high quality Grade 5 titanium sheets. (Gr2 or "commercially pure" titanium is much weaker and not what you want for combat robots!)
New! 2.0mm (0.08") thick sheets - Great for armor!
Reduced! The price of 3.0mm (0.12") sheets has been reduced! (Was $57.14ea.)

Tips
- Use 0.5mm (0.02") for wrapping around wheels and making springy, shock-absorbing armor.
- Use the medium sizes for rigid panels and wedges.
- Use 3mm (0.12") for weapon bars and blades. (Or impenetrable armor!)
- Thin sizes can be cut with aviation snips and metal shears, thicker sizes with rotary tools (dremel discs, angle grinder zip discs, metal-cutting chop saw), and bandsaws (using metal-cutting blade).
- Can be bent by hand tools or a brake (thicker sizes should be cautiously heated to glowing orange with a propane torch to prevent cracking).  Larger radius bends work better!
- Use cutting fluid when drilling, with slow RPM and high pressure.

Specifications
Grade: Gr5 (6AL-4V) ASTM B265
Sheet Size: 20.32x25.4cm (8x10")
Sizes are ±4mm and sheets may not be perfectly flat or unmarked.
Density: 4.43g/cm3 (2.56oz/in3)
Thickness and Weight:
- 0.5mm (0.02"): 114g (4.03 oz)
- 0.8mm (0.03"): 183g (6.45 oz)
- 1.0mm (0.04"): 229g (8.07 oz)
- 2.0mm (0.08"): 458g (16.16oz)
- 3.0mm (0.12"): 687g (24.23oz)
Tensile Strength: 9687kgf/cm2 (138kpsi)

Note: The 0.5mm thickness is more expensive than 0.8mm because it is difficult to manufacture.  But it is one of the most useful sizes for small robots thanks to being so springy!  Bend a piece around the back of your robot to make very light and strong wheel guards.

Cheapest i could find!

- 09th January 2016

I got the 1mm thick piece, other titanium sellers were quoting anywhere from 30-50 USD for the same thickness, but FingerTech is what I went with. 10/10 for price and quality!

The Cheapest Super-Thin 6AL-6V on the Market

- 24th February 2015

I spent the better part of a day perusing various online metal suppliers, titanium men, and less-than reputable auction sites: the Fingertech 6AL-4V is the least expensive I can find in the sub-1mm thickness by a mile. Cuts beautifully whether by tin snips, hacksaw, or waterjet, weighs nothing, and gives you the strength of steel.

Amazing value

- 06th September 2014

Great quality titanium for an amazing price. This is by far the best cost compared to any other source.
FingerTech will be my only source for thin titanium for now on!
