As the world deals with potential supply shortages, oil prices are soaring again, with more dramatic spikes and sudden drops expected.
For consumers, that means more expensive gas for longer - prices at the pump remain above $4 a gallon. For the economy, that means more inflation. In addition to the pressure on consumers, any business that relies on oil -- from airlines and truck drivers to chemical companies and plastics producers -- will face higher costs.
Mr Pickering estimates that 2m to 3m barrels a day of Russian oil shipped by water are frozen out of the market with no direct buyers. Due to the soaring oil price, the price of the Ti6Al4V alloy in the chemical industry will also be greatly affected. He said China and India are continuing to buy Russian crude. "I'm sure there will be others willing to take on more over time," he said. Mr Pickering said he did not expect oil to return to $130 a barrel, but added that it could happen. Francisco Branch, head of commodities and derivatives at Bank of America, said the US market was ready for cyclical price spikes and price swings in the Ti6Al4V alloy.
What is Titanium Alloy?
Titanium alloy Ti6Al4V 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 main properties and uses
Ti6Al4V titanium alloy is heated below 430 ℃ for a long time to form a very thin and protective oxide film. As the heating temperature increases, the oxide film thickens and its protection becomes poor. After the alloy was heated at 700 °C for 2 h, the oxide film thickness reached 25 μrn. Heating at temperatures above 800°C forms a sparse oxide layer. After heating at 1000 °C for 1 h, the thickness of the oxide layer reached 0.65 mm.
Ti6Al4V alloy can be welded by argon arc welding, spot welding, brazing, electron beam welding and plasma welding. The strength of the welded joint is basically the same as that of the base metal.
When Ti6Al4V titanium alloy parts are in contact with aluminum alloy and structural steel parts, especially under certain corrosive medium conditions, aluminum alloy and structural steel parts will suffer accelerated corrosion and damage as the anode of the contact couple due to the negative electrode potential. Therefore, between TC4 titanium alloy parts and aluminum alloy or structural steel parts, protective measures such as padding and anti-corrosion tape should be taken. TC4 alloy parts are strictly prohibited from contact with parts or tools of lead, zinc, cadmium, tin, silver, bismuth and other metals.
Before vacuum annealing, the oxide skin and oxygen-rich layer on the surface of the parts should be removed, and the oil should be carefully removed before entering the furnace. When vacuum annealing parts with complex shapes, fixtures must be used to reduce the deformation of parts. Into the furnace parts are preferably filled with pre-degassed titanium oxide-free chips to prevent oxidation of the parts.
Ti6Al4V titanium alloy is now widely used in the manufacture of aero-engine fans and compressor discs and blades, as well as various load-bearing beams, frames, joints and fasteners in aircraft structures.

With Russia taking the lead on Poland and Bulgaria at the end of last month, there appears to be a growing sense of compromise within the EU over whether to accept Moscow's proposed rouble settlement order.
Italy's prime minister said recently that European companies would be able to buy gas in roubles without violating sanctions. This apparently ignores the guidance of hardliners in the EU to "fight to the end".
For weeks, European companies have been trying to find ways to meet Russia's payment demands for the rouble while maintaining vital gas supplies without violating sanctions against Moscow.
Late last month, European Commission President Von der Leyen said operating under the mechanism would violate sanctions and asked European companies not to bow to Russian demands. However, the EU has yet to issue more rigorous written guidelines on how companies should pay Gazprom.
The Italian prime minister said recently, "There is no official announcement from the European Union about what ruble settlement means for sanctions violations, and no one has said whether ruble payments violate sanctions or not. It's a grey area."
"In fact, most gas importers are already opening rouble accounts for deals with Gazprom,"
He also used German companies as a shield. He said Germany's largest gas importer had already paid in rubles. "In fact, we saw evidence yesterday that the largest gas importer in Germany has already paid in rubles."
