Titanium has a huge number of uses and common applications, a lot that most people may not be completely familiar with. Titanium components like fasteners and tubing are important for many industrial applications, but why are titanium alloys used versus other metals? What makes titanium components a great option for industrial and other applications?Titanium Characteristics
What makes titanium alloys an important part of the metalworking industry? It has many useful and effective characteristics. Although steel is one of the strongest metals, titanium matches the strength of steel, but it is lighter. Titanium has the highest strength to weight ratio of any structural metal. A very strong and light weight material has a lot of uses in several different industries. Titanium can also withstand high temperatures and pressure. These characteristics make titanium a highly desirable metal because it can be used in a wide variety of situations and products undergoing a range of processes. What are some of the most common titanium alloy applications?Titanium FastenersTitanium components, like fasteners, are mainly used in aircrafts. An aircraft needs to withstand a lot of pressure and still be light. Titanium is also corrosion resistant and good high-temperature performance, which are also important features in aerospace components. Titanium fasteners have other applications as well. In the aerospace industry, however, they are a highly important component.Titanium TubingBecause of the high resistivity to corrosion and high temperature, it is a perfect material for many different components. Titanium tubing can be used in either aerospace components or marine components. Deep sea drilling components, marine parts or at desalination plants, titanium tubing can come in handing in a variety of different situations.Whether it be titanium fasteners, titanium tubing, or any other titanium needs, contact Ferralloy Inc today!
