What is Titanium used for?

Titanium alloys are used in industrial applications like medical devices and implants, aircraft, armor plating, naval ships, and spacecraft.

What are everyday uses for titanium?

Medical devices like surgical instruments and implants like hips and knees. Personal items like watches and other jewellery. Engineering components like pipe spooling, autoclaves, sub sea parts used in rov’s and submarines. Titanium is also used in the automotive industry for car and bike exhaust systems.

Due to their high tensile strength to density ratio, high corrosion resistance, and ability to withstand moderately high temperatures without creeping, titanium alloys are widely used in aerospace, aircraft engines and missiles where strong, lightweight, temperature-resistant materials are needed.

Did you know Titanium oxide is also found in paint, toothpaste and sunscreen?

Technical information

Technical fact: Titanium is lightweight, strong, corrosion resistant and abundant in nature.

Titanium and its alloys possess tensile strengths from 30,000 psi to 200,000 psi (210-1380 MPa), which are equivalent to those strengths found in most of alloy steels. The density of titanium is only 56 percent that of steel, and its corrosion resistance compares well with that of platinum. Of all the elements in the earth’s crust, titanium is the ninth most plentiful. Titanium has a high melting point of 3135°F (1725°C). This melting point is approximately 400°F (220°C) above the melting point of steel and approximately 2000°F (1100°C) above that of aluminium.
