The most widely known metastable beta-titanium alloys are alloys B120VCA, BT15, TC6 and IBTI. The specific feature of the afore mentioned alloys is that the ductile high-temperature metastable beta-phase which has been obtained by quenching remains unstable and subsequent heatings will cause its decomposition with secondary phases precipitating out which will increase the strength and decrease the ductility of the alloys.
