ACER Racing introduces ACERTi: our latest line of Titanium screws which are manufactured using the finest Aerospace Grade 6AL4V Titanium to achieve the hardest and lightest titanium screws, titanium nuts, and titanium bolts. Check out our full line of M3, M4, M5, M6, M8, M10, M12, M14 & M15 titanium bolts & screws with flat heads, button heads, cap heads, tapered heads, 12 point heads and flanged heads. We use ONLY 6AL4V Titanium and not the cheaper Grade 1 or 2 titanium other manufacturers use. While the lower grades may look similar to 6AL4V Titanium and are easier to cut, they do not have anywhere near the amazing strength of our Grade 5 6AL4V Titanium screws which is over 400% stronger.
6AL4V Titanium properties include a tensile strength of 1000 MPa (megapascals) which is the equivalent of 145000 psi. By comparison, annealed type 316 stainless steel has tensile strength of only 570 MPa (82670 psi), tempered 6061 aluminium alloy has tensile strength of 310 MPa, and Grade 1 Titanium has a tensile strength of only 240 MPa (34809 psi). Do not accept lower grade titanium - use only the best: ACERTi.
One of the primary advantages of our titanium bolts is their remarkable strength-to-weight ratio. Titanium is approximately 50% lighter than steel. This weight reduction can have a significant impact in applications where minimizing weight is critical, such as aerospace, automotive, and sports equipment manufacturing. Using titanium bolts can contribute to weight savings without compromising structural integrity or performance.
Another notable advantage of our titanium bolts is their outstanding corrosion resistance. Titanium has a natural oxide layer that forms on its surface, providing a protective barrier against environmental elements. This oxide layer makes titanium highly resistant to corrosion, even in aggressive environments with exposure to moisture, saltwater, or chemicals. As a result, titanium bolts are ideal for applications in marine environments, offshore structures, or any industry where corrosion is a concern.
Additionally, titanium bolts have excellent biocompatibility, meaning they are compatible with the human body and other biological systems. This property makes them suitable for medical applications, such as orthopedic implants or surgical instruments. Titanium's biocompatibility reduces the risk of adverse reactions or complications, allowing for improved patient outcomes and long-term implant stability.
Furthermore, titanium bolts exhibit exceptional temperature resistance. They can withstand high temperatures without losing their mechanical properties or deforming. This makes them suitable for applications where heat or thermal cycling is involved, such as in aerospace engines, high-performance racing cars, or industrial equipment subjected to extreme temperatures.
Moreover, titanium bolts offer excellent fatigue strength, meaning they can withstand repeated loading and unloading without failure. This property makes them suitable for applications that require high reliability and durability, such as in heavy machinery, structural components, or critical fastening applications.
The advantages of ACERTi titanium bolts include exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance, biocompatibility, temperature resistance, and fatigue strength. These qualities make them highly desirable in industries where weight reduction, corrosion resistance, or specific material properties are essential. Titanium bolts continue to find widespread use in various applications, contributing to improved performance, longevity, and reliability.
