Titanium for Aerospace

Titanium gained popularity by the end of the 18th Century, it became the most coveted element in the manufacturing industry on a global scale. However, until the beginning of the Cold War, titanium and its alloys became the talk of the town of commercial and military aerospace industries. Titanium replaced aluminum for its exceedingly favorable […]

Titanium Clad Steel Plates

Titanium is a superior corrosion and heat resistant metal. Titanium clad steel plates are made of common grade TA1 or TA2 combined with carbon steel or even alloy steel using the process of explosive welding along with hot rolling for smooth-surfaced plates. Titanium steel clad plates are cost-effective as compared to pure titanium; and, therefore, […]

Why Titanium ELI grade is a better choice for Medical implants?

Titanium is judged to be completely inert and immune to corrosion by all body fluids and tissue, and is thus wholly biocompatible. Following properties of Titanium makes it best choice for implants: Immunity to corrosion Biocompatibility Strength  – Low modulus and density Capacity for joining with bone and other tissue (Osseo integration). Importance of ELI […]
