Titanium is a lightweight, silver-gray material with an excellent corrosion resistance and a very high strength to weight ratio. Even though titanium is the fourth most abundant metal on earth, it is rarely found in it's pure form. Typically titanium exists in minerals such as anatase, brookite, ilmenite, leucoexene, rutile and sphene remaining very expense as a metal due to the fact it is difficult to isolate.

Depending on the properties and the method by which they are manipulated during manufacture, titanium alloys number in the thousands, but are grouped into four main categories:

  1. Alpha Titanium Alloys
  2. Alpha Beta Titanium Alloys
  3. Near Alpha Titanium Alloys
  4. Beta Titanium Alloys

The aerospace and marine industries are the largest users of titanium products due to the metals high strength to weight ratio and high temperature properties. These properties make titanium appropriate for use in various aircraft, spacecraft, engine parts, armor plating, shipbuilding, missiles, fasteners, heat shields and a multitude of other parts.

Certain types of titanium are used widely in the medical industry for joint replacement, defibrillators and pacemakers because of the fact that titanium is extremely compatible with the human body.

Due to the superior corrosion resistance of titanium, it is a metal used significantly in the chemical processing industry for tanks, tank linings, pumps, valves and heat exchangers on production lines. The same corrosion resistance makes titanium ideal for the metal finishing, oil refining and water desalinization industries for heat exchanger coils, condenser tubing, piping, jigs, tanks and tank linings.

Grades 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 11, and 12 and considered 'unalloyed' titanium and have similar mechanical properties. Grades 1 through 4 allow increasing levels of impurities. Grades 7 and 11 have 0.2% palladium added to improve titanium's already excellent corrosion resistance. The most commonly used titanium alloy is Grade 5 Titanium 6AL-4V combining 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium. Additional grades are available beyond grade 30 and above based on the alloying material used.

Titanium is available in standard forms such as round bar, sheet, plate, rectangular and square bar, wire, forgings and billets. The size available may vary by grade and material is made to conform to standard specifications such as AMS, ASTM and MIL specifications.
