Abstract We have measured the superconducting transition temperatures of commercial alloys Dural and titanium 6Al–4V, to assess their suitability for use in the cryoEDM neutron electric dipole moment experiment. Our sample of aluminium alloy Dural became a superconductor at 0.84 ± 0.07 K but the titanium alloy did not show any superconducting behaviour down to the experimental limit of 0.17 ± 0.11 K.
