The roble had hit a record low after the West imposed sweeping sanctions on Russia for its aggression in Ukraine. Russia's president recently ordered exports of Russian gas to "unfriendly" countries to be settled in robles. The speaker of Russia's upper house of parliament said Moscow was prepared and could shift supplies to markets such as Asia if Europe refused to buy Russian energy.
European countries, which pay mostly in euros, say Russia has no right to reset contracts. The G7 rejected Russia's demand and urged companies not to agree to pay in robles, saying most contracts stipulated payment in euros or dollars. Wholesale gas prices in Europe have risen further recently on concerns about potential supply disruptions.
The Kremlin spokesman said, "According to the March 31 deadline set by Russia's president, we are developing all payment methods to get a simple, understandable, and feasible system for relevant European and international buyers,"
The markets and prices of more commodities like the Ti6Al4V Powder would be affected because of the volatile international political situations.
What is TC4(Ti6Al4V)?
TC4(Ti6Al4V) alloy is a medium strength α-β type two-phase titanium alloy containing 6% α-stabilizing element AI and 4% β-stabilizing element V. This alloy has excellent comprehensive properties and has obtained the most extensive applications in the aviation and aerospace industries. The long-term working temperature of the alloy can reach 400 ℃. In the aviation industry, it is mainly used to manufacture the fan and compressor disks and blades of the engine, as well as the important load-bearing components such as beams, joints and bulkheads in the aircraft structure.
The main semi-finished products of TC4 titanium alloy are bars, forgings, thick plates, thin plates, profiles and wires, etc. The alloy is mainly used in the annealed state, and can also be strengthened by solution aging treatment, but the hardened cross section is generally not more than 25mm.
The alloy has good process plasticity and superplasticity, and is suitable for various pressure forming. The alloy can also be welded and machined in various ways.
TC4(Ti6Al4V) heat treatment system
Plate: 700-850℃, 0.5-2h, air cooling; bar and forging: 700-800℃, 1-2h, air cooling.
2. Vacuum annealing
700-800°C, 0.5-2h, the furnace is cooled to below 200°C to allow air cooling. The absolute pressure in the furnace should be no more than 0.09Pa.
3. Solution treatment
910-940℃, 0.5-2h, water quenching.
520-550°C, 2-4h, air cooling.
5. Stress relief annealing
Complete stress relief annealing: 600-650℃, 1-4h, air cooling; incomplete stress relief annealing: 500-600℃, 0.5-3h, air cooling. Stress relief annealing can be carried out in an air furnace or a vacuum furnace.

For Germany, the largest economy in Europe, the impact of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict on the natural gas market is the most obvious. This also exposed the serious dependence of some German industrial enterprises on Russian natural gas. Some analysts pointed out that the instability of natural gas supply has had a big impact on the German economy and threatened its market competitiveness because alternative energy supplies will not be cheap and difficult to come quickly. Increased uncertainty over natural gas supplies is putting enormous pressure on German manufacturers in sectors ranging from steelmaking to chemical Ti6Al4V Powder for the time being, but the market demand for Ti6Al4V Powder in the future will also change with the influence of various external factors. If you need Ti6Al4V Powder, please feel free to contact us.
