Using 6Al-4V ELI Titanium for rings


#1

Hi

Does titanium need any special treatment or prep for non anodized
jewelry that contacts the skin.

Is ultrasonic or hand cleaning all that is necessary after machining
& buffing. Any comments on using grade 23 (6Al-4V ELI ) for rings or
bands.

Thanks
Stef.

Stef, 6/4 ELI is the same alloy that hip joints and other implants
are made from. You need to do nothing but clean to remove cutting
oils and the like.
