ABOUT TITANIUM

CORROSION RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • Titanium selected for many applications based on excellent corrosion properties
    • Aerospace
    • Marine
    • Chemical Processing
CORROSION RESISTANCE
  • Unalloyed titanium is highly resistant to corrosion in most natural environments
    • Seawater
      Titanium exposed continuously to seawater for 18 years has only superficial discolouring
    • Body fluids
      Titanium used in orthopedic prostheses and heart valve components
    • Fruit and vegetable juices
  • Ti alloys are less resistant to corrosion
TITANIUM CHARACTERISTICS-PROPERTIES

  • Light Weight:
    - 60% Density of Steel
  • High Strength:
    - Highest strength-to-density ratio of all metals up to 500 degrees C
  • Corrosion Resistant:
    - generally superior to stainless steel and copper alloys; immune to seawater
  • Non-magnetic
  • Good heat transfer properties
  • Able to passivate:
    - exhibits a high degree of immunity to most mineral acids and chlorides
  • Non-toxic:
    - biologically compatible with human tissues and bones
