Examples include titanium, Inconel, Ni-Cr alloys, superalloys, nickel and cobalt alloys.
Description: Class 6 materials such as titanium alloys are very useful because they have a good strength-to-weight ratio. This makes them ideal for use in areas ranging from aerospace to sports equipment.
Preparation Challenge: Metallographic preparation of titanium and titanium alloys is fairly straight forward by conventional metallographic techniques.
