I’ve recently started experimenting with Titanium, and have a couple
questions. First, I’d like to achieve the finish that is often seen
on titanium products, the sand blasted, dark finish. I tried sand
blasting, but that doesn’t produce the darker look. I’ve seen this
finish on watches and golf clubs, and it seems to be the most common
Titanium finish. Is it an oxidation…?
Any reccomendations for someone in Arizona who can cast Ti? Last
Question: I’ve heard a bit about the various alloys, but how are
they stronger? For instance, are Ti 6AL 4V and Ti 6AL 2V 2Sn more
scratch resistant, or do they give greater pressure in a tension
set, all else being equal?
Thanks for your help!
