Titanium is a high strength low density metal, with high corrosion resistance. Titanium can be welded, machined and formed the same as any other steel.
Titanium has a melting point temperature of 1668°c which is greater than steel yet titanium weighs almost half that of stainless steel. Due to its unprecedented strength and non-corrosive characteristics, titanium is the metal of choice for engineers in the aerospace, petrochemical and medical industry. The higher strength of titanium enables engineers to use thinner materials, which in turn saves material costs and handling charges.
Titanium is used in Aircraft for the engines and frames, Automotive, Petrochemical, Medical implants, Offshore piping systems, Desalination plants, Pulp and Paper plants and Heat Exchangers (tube and compact types) to name but a few. Titanium has found its way onto your local High Street proving itself popular with customers buying spectacle frames, sunglasses, watches and jewellery. It can even be found on the golf course as titanium has been used to manufacture golf clubs.
