We manufacture and supply the widest range of titanium bar and rod products. Ti bar grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, grade 4, 6AL4V, 6AL4V Eli, 6/6/2. Ti rod diameter size range between 8 – 400mm and we supply in either round bar, square bar, rectangular bar or hexagonal bar shapes. Our production is aligned to ASTM B348 and other comparable international standards.
We have supplied titanium rods for use in several industries with our core markets being in aerospace, chemical processing and the medical industry. Due to our large volume production we also maintain a large stock and are able to fulfill orders to shortened lead times and our titanium prices start from as low as$30USD/kg.
We have invested heavily in our production process and equipment for our titanium bars. Our commitment to building a reputation as a trusted and reliable supplier focuses our work on being able to manufacture both bespoke and standard sized ti bar in large volumes with quick turn around times. All of our round ti bar, hexagonal ti bar and square ti bar are available in a variety of different surface finishes including pickling, black painted and sand blasted.
After 20 years as a titanium bar supplier we have manufactured ti bar and titanium bar for sale to a variety of shapes and sizes however we follow international standard to ensure consistency in production. A selection of the typical composition and material properties are detailed below.

Our titanium bars have been used extensively in medical and chemical industries, providing requisite strengh to weight properties need to ensure extreme conditions and heavy usage without corrosion or failure. We have also recently provided titanium rods for some really exciting tech products for the consumer market.
The table below displays the composition of materials found with the differing grades of titanium. Each grade as a result has a differing set of properties which accommodate the differing industry requirements.
Tolerances in size for Titanium Bars
The table below details the differing diameter tolerances for the differing lengths of titanium bar. These are aligned to internationally recognised engineering standards. The differing production methods define the range of diameters for each approach. All titanium rod dimenions and tolerances are agreed ahead of order.
|Hot forged bar tolerances (mm)||±1.5||±2.0||±2.5||±3.0||±3.5||±5.0||±6.5|
|Hot extruded bar tolerances (mm)||+0.8,-1.0||±2.0||±2.5||±2.5|
|Hot rolled bar tolerances (mm)||+0.7, -0.5||+1.2, -0.5||+1.5, -1.0||+2.0, -1.0||+2.2, -1.2||-||-|
The table below details the individual tensile properties for each grade of titanium. With all our products independent inspection and testing is carried out to ensure quality and provide assurances throughout.

Why North Steel?
- Titanium bars are one of our most popular products, round bars, square bars, rectangular bars and hexagonal bar shapes with rolled or forged processing technology. We are experts in the field and are recognised as a trusted titanium bar supplier.
- Efficiency and Quality. We constantly strive to improve our titanium production capability and align continuous improvement to the CMM model and recognise the importance that high quality and and efficient supply chain is to your customers.
- Our technical Quality Assurances department enforce strict quality control system to ensure consistency and quality throughout.
Quality Assurance in our Titanium Production
Our stringent Quality Assurance process is our competitive advantage and is at the heart of everything we do at Norst. Highlights of our QA process are:
- We have our own service management QC system to control quality from raw material sponge to mill product and every process step in the production of titanium.
- We provide “Product Quality Certificate” and inspection reports with every order.
- We maintain a controlled stock inventory to enable us to fullfil orders in short time periods.
- We have an english speaking work environment and have exported products for many years, this ensures there is no misunderstand or requirements or manufacturing approaches.
Titanium Bar Production Process
The graphic below gives an overview to the main processing steps for the production of titanium bar. We manage the full production process. From sourcing the titanium sponge through to the forging of ingots, down to the hot rolling of the ti bars. Its important for us to manage the process from start to finish to ensure consistency in material and also ensure our high engineering standards and fast production.
