    Pedigree..??

    While suitable for practice and non critical applications..

    that Chinese Ti filler is probably not acceptable for many applications that require a certificate of origen or pedigree for materials used.. as in many if not most aerospace applications... which is where the MAJORITY of Ti is used...

    So it may not be a great buy at any price.. depending on your intended use..

    Thanks for the heads up! Not terribly interested in CP2, but I wrote them an email to see if they can offer Grade 23 tig wire.

  • Anyone interested in stocking up on Titanium TIG filler rod at low, low pricing?

    So a few months back I had gotten an itch to try to learn to weld titanium. I looked around for filler rod pricing (since it is usually very expensive), and found a couple places willing to do business on relatively small orders, with chinese-produced Ti 6AL-4V ELI.

    Shipping from USA: I'm looking for people who are willing to spit out around ~$275 shipping-included, for a 5-lb chunk (0.035", or 0.045", or 1/16").
    • ERTi-5/Gr.5 - 0.035” - $45/lb (Chinese)
    • ERTi-5 ELI/Gr.23 - 0.045” - $52.95/lb (Chinese)
    • ERTi-5 ELI/Gr.23 - 1/16” - $51.40/lb (Chinese) (they also have a 5.5 lbs-open package, made in USA from chinese billet, not subject to M.O.Q.)



    FYI:
    • 5-lb of 0.035" Ti = Qty: ~902 x 36" long pieces
    • 5-lb of 0.045" Ti = Qty: ~546 x 36" long pieces
    • 5-lb of 0.0625" Ti = Qty: ~283 x 36" long pieces



    They also offer ERTi-5 ELI/Gr.23 in 0.030" diameter in 10-15 lb spools @ $30/lb.

    FYI:
    • 10 lbs of 0.030" Ti = 7,368 ft = Equivalent Qty: 2,456 @ 36" long pieces.



    Shipping from China, here $250 would get you approx. ~2.5 kg/5.5 lbs ERTi-5 ELI/Gr.23 0.045", I've already factored in the shipping costs.
    Slightly more for 0.035", slightly less for 1/16".

    5 kg (~11 lbs) = $45.55/lb (~$500 for 11 lbs, shipped)
    10 kg (~22 lbs) = $43.56/lb (~$958 for 22 lbs shipped)


    So......who's in? Everywhere else is $75+ per pound. If you buy 10-sticks at a time on Ebay or where-ever, you're paying the equivalent of ~$150+ per pound(!). (yes, I actually calculated it )
Working...
