On the occasion of the International Day of Human Space Flight on April 12th, at S+D, we would like to showcase our materials used in aerospace. Our high-quality sheets, plates, rods, and other semi-finished products made from nickel and titanium alloys are in high demand and used in many spacecraft. These materials are not only lightweight and durable but also highly resistant to extreme temperatures and other stresses in space. In the construction of spacecraft and satellites, a variety of materials and alloys are used. Titanium and nickel alloys, in particular, play an important role, as they are particularly well-suited for the extreme conditions of space due to their special properties. One of the most important titanium alloys is Ti-6Al-4V, also known as "Grade 5". This alloy is characterized by high strength and corrosion resistance and is also very lightweight due to its low density. Ti-6Al-4V is used, for example, in the production of engine components, structural elements, and blades for turbopumps.

In addition to titanium alloys, nickel alloys such as Inconel 718 are used, which are known for their high heat resistance. Inconel 718 consists of nickel, chromium, and molybdenum and is characterized by high strength and corrosion resistance at high temperatures. These properties make Inconel 718 an ideal material for the production of high-temperature components such as gas turbines, rocket engines, and jet engines. Overall, titanium and nickel alloys are indispensable materials for the construction of spacecraft and satellites due to their excellent mechanical properties, heat and corrosion resistance, and lightweight construction. As a leading supplier of semi-finished products and materials, we are proud to support our customers in the aerospace industry with the best materials. Our products contribute to the safe and efficient construction of spacecraft. Feel free to visit our website to learn more about our extensive range of high-quality semi-finished products and materials made from titanium and nickel alloys. We look forward to helping you with your next project in the aerospace industry.
