What are the uses of titanium and titanium alloy?

Titanium is a silver colored and highly active metal which characterized by its high strength, high corrosion resistance, low weight ratio, low thermal conductivity and no magnetism, is widely used for a wide variety of applications where demand high levels of reliable performance. Here we will introduce some typical uses of titanium?

Power plant
Titanium material is widely used in the Power Generation industry. Power plant condensers use titanium tubing due to its corrosion resistance and its unlimited lifespan. Because titanium has excellent resistance to corrosion in seawater, it is used in desalination plants and to protect the hulls of ships, submarines and other structures exposed to seawater.

Aircraft and spacecraft
Titanium alloys are mainly used in aircraft, spacecraft and missiles because of their low density and ability to withstand extremes of temperature. Structural airframe applications include wing structures, landing gear components, critical fasteners, springs, and hydraulic tubing.

Medical Industry
The strength to weight ratio has made titanium a great material choice in the medical market where weight reduction is beneficial. Titanium metal connects well with bone, so it has found surgical applications such as in joint replacements, Bone and joint replacement, Dental Implants, Cardiac and vascular implants, Skull repair implants.

Chemical Processing
Titanium’s superior corrosion resistance properties make it the industry choice for high-temperature environments or corrosive (saltwater or chemical) environment like Chemical Processing applications. They are widely used in the piping material and components in the Pressure Vessels, Distillation Columns, Reactors & Agitators, Pollution Control Equipment, Heat Exchangers & Condensers, Swimming pool lining & fixtures, Instrumentation & Flow Control Equipment, agitators, coolers and so on.

light industrial products
The largest use of titanium is in the form of titanium oxide. It is extensively used as a pigment in house paint, artists’ paint, jewelry, sporting products, cosmetic, enamels and paper. The strength to weight ratio has made titanium a great material choice in the sporting goods and fashion market where weight reduction is beneficial.

The selection of titanium in the abundant application is because of its specific properties associated with the metal including reliability, corrosion resistance, thermal expansion, strength to weight ratio, mechanical properties.
