Superplastic behaviors of sheets out of commercial Ti6Al4V titanium alloy thickness by 1.0mm and 1.5mm were investigated at relatively low temperatures in the field of 650°C - 800°C and at strain rates ranging from 7x10-5s-1 up to 4x10-2s-1. The obtained results show that sheets exhibit excellent low temperature superplasticity
