Titanium Chemical Etching – Titanium Etching

Titanium (Ti) is a transition metal, recognized for its low density and high strength-to-weight ratio. It is highly resistant to corrosion, especially from seawater and chlorine. Titanium alloys, such as Ti-6Al-4V, are extensively used in industries where performance in extreme conditions is critical. However, the same properties that make titanium valuable also make it difficult to process using conventional machining techniques, which is where chemical etching becomes particularly useful.

Titanium Etching

Titanium chemical etching is a specialized process used to pattern or etch titanium and its alloys through chemical means. This process plays a significant role in various industries, including aerospace, medical, and electronics, due to titanium’s unique properties such as high strength, low density, excellent corrosion resistance, and biocompatibility.

How To Etch Titanium

Metal Grades For Titanium Etching

Titanium etching requires careful consideration of the specific titanium grade being used. The choice of titanium grade affects the etching process, including the selection of etchants, etching conditions, and the final properties of the etched components. BE-CU ETCH offers precision etching with multiple titaniumm alloys.Below are some of the common grades of titanium used in etching applications, each with its unique properties and suitable applications:

Commercially Pure Titanium Etching

Commercially pure titanium is available in four grades, each with varying amounts of impurities. These grades are characterized by their excellent corrosion resistance, biocompatibility, and moderate strength.

  • Grade 1: The softest and most ductile of the commercially pure titanium grades. It is easy to form and weld, making it suitable for applications requiring good corrosion resistance and high ductility. Typical applications include chemical processing equipment, marine environments, and medical devices.
  • Grade 3: Higher strength than Grades 1 and 2, but slightly less ductile. It is used in applications requiring higher mechanical properties, such as industrial and aerospace applications.
  • Grade 2: The most widely used of the commercially pure titanium grades. It offers a good balance of strength, ductility, and weldability. Common applications include aerospace components, chemical processing, and medical implants.
  • Grade 4: The strongest of the commercially pure titanium grades. It provides excellent corrosion resistance and good formability. Applications include medical implants, industrial equipment, and aerospace components.

Titanium Alloys Etching

Titanium alloys are developed to enhance specific properties, such as strength, heat resistance, and toughness. These alloys typically contain elements like aluminum, vanadium, and tin.


Ti-6Al-4V (Grade 5)

Ti-6Al-4V is the most commonly used titanium alloy, known for its high strength, lightweight, and excellent corrosion resistance. It contains 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium.
Applications: Aerospace components, medical implants, marine applications, and high-performance automotive parts.
Etching Considerations: Ti-6Al-4V requires more aggressive etchants and precise process control due to its alloying elements, which can affect the etching rate and pattern resolution.

Ti-6Al-4V ELI (Grade 23)

Ti-6Al-4V ELI (Extra Low Interstitial) is a variant of Grade 5 with lower levels of impurities, resulting in improved ductility and fracture toughness. It is particularly suitable for medical applications.
Applications: Medical implants, surgical instruments, and other biomedical devices.
Etching Considerations: Similar to Grade 5, but the lower impurity levels may provide more consistent etching results.

Ti-3Al-2.5V (Grade 9)

Ti-3Al-2.5V is a titanium alloy that offers a good balance of strength, ductility, and weldability. It contains 3% aluminum and 2.5% vanadium.
Applications: Aerospace tubing, sports equipment, and industrial applications.
Etching Considerations: Requires specific etching parameters to manage the alloying elements and achieve uniform etching.

Ti-5Al-2.5Sn (Grade 6)

Ti-5Al-2.5Sn is an alloy with 5% aluminum and 2.5% tin, known for its high strength and good weldability.
Applications: Aerospace components, heat exchangers, and pressure vessels.
Etching Considerations: The presence of tin requires adjustments in the etching process to ensure uniformity and precision.

Ti-6Al-2Sn-4Zr-2Mo (Grade 6-2-4-2)

Ti-6Al-2Sn-4Zr-2Mo is an alloy developed for high-temperature applications. It offers excellent strength and thermal stability.
Applications: Aerospace engine components, high-temperature structural applications.
Etching Considerations: Requires careful control of etching conditions due to the presence of multiple alloying elements.

Ti-15V-3Cr-3Sn-3Al (Grade 15-3-3-3)

Ti-15V-3Cr-3Sn-3Al is a beta titanium alloy known for its high strength, excellent formability, and good corrosion resistance.
Applications: Aerospace components, springs, and fasteners.
Etching Considerations: Beta alloys like this one may require different etching solutions and parameters compared to alpha or alpha-beta alloys.

Components That Are Produced By Etching Titanium

The popularity of titanium makes it a desirable metal for use in fabrication because it is easy to manufacture and has favorable properties for many industrial products.With the photo etching process, the metal is etched evenly without any structural deformations from the hard tooling used in stamping and punching.Since there isn’t a heat point of contact like laser cutting, the parts’ metal properties remain unchanged and free from thermal deformations.Get inspired by our custom etching part projects and contact us to Get Instant Quote for rapid prototype or titanium etching parts start from 1pcs.
