While Titanium is being used in a wide and diversified range of industry, it is important to note that titanium is available in several different grades.
TATIAS Titanium jewelry is the only jeweler in Korea that crafts titanium jewelry with titanium alloy, the same grade of titanium that is used in surgery and medicine.
When compared with Durable 6AL-4V, ELI Durable 6AL-4V is higher in price, of better quality, and more biocompatible.
Ti6AL4V, the type we use to make our jewelry at TATIAS, is proven for its biocompatibility.
ASTM B348(Durable 6AL-4V, aka Ti 6-4) is the most commonly used alloy among jewerly manufacturers. It has a chemical composition of 6% aluminium and 4% vanadium and is mostly used for industrial purposes
Although Ti 6-4 features excellent mechanical properties, it is not suitable for surgeries or biomedical implants. Use of Ti 6-4 for any medical purpose is prohibited by Korea MFDS (Korea Ministry of Food and Drug Safety), U.S. FDA, and Japan MHLW (Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare).
In the medical industry, Grade 2 titanium with moderate strength or Grade 4 titanium which offers greater strength is more commonly used.
TATIAS ELI Titanium is Grade5/Durable 6AL-4V which is widely used for biomedical implants and sugical tools for its excellent biocompatibility. TATIAS is proud to provide our customers with such quality products that are designed for safety and comfort of people.
