Titanium benefits from a wide range of application uses, from medical implants and marine applications to the manufacture of leisure equipment
Titanium, which is the tenth most commonly occurring element in the Earth's crust, is a light, strong metal with a natural resistance to marine and chlorine corrosion. It has the highest strength to weight ratio of any metal and even in its unalloyed form it is as strong as some steels but around 45% lighter and has a high melting point.
Titanium alloys contain additional quantities of other elements such as vanadium and aluminium to further enhance mechanical properties and corrosion resistance.
- Due to excellent resistance to sea water, titanium is used in the manufacture of ships' propeller shafts and sail boat rigging.
- Titanium is used for architectural applications where it is applied as exterior panels and in the nuclear, oil and chemical industries where it is used for pipes, etc due to its corrosion resistance.
- Because it is physiologically inert and can osseointegrate, titanium is a choice material for joint replacement and tooth implants.
- Titanium is used for golf clubs and other sports equipment such as bicycles because of its high strength to weight ratio. This quality also makes titanium suitable for the aerospace industry - for example in aircraft engines and air frames. It has also been used for laptop computers due to its light weight.
