Getting To Grips With Titanium
Looking to find out more about titanium? Look no further than Ti-Tek! Named after the Titans from Greek mythology, Titanium is a unique transition metal that is found in various living things.
Here’s an insight into what titanium is and how it originated:
Titanium is an abundant metal that was first discovered in the earth’s crust in 1791. It was then named “Titanium” in 1795 and is the ninth most abundant metal to be found! The 1930’s brought even more findings, as titanium was extracted for the first time.
As a transition metal, titanium is mixed with various other elements to form titanium metal alloys. One of the main reasons why titanium is so popular in several industries is that it can be alloyed with other metals, creating a more reliable metal with specific uses.
Titanium alloys combine the best properties of metals, so when choosing titanium, be sure to choose the alloy that suits your application specifically!
When it comes to choosing titanium, you can rest assured that Ti-Tek provides various grades of titanium so be sure to choose something suitable today. Should you need to know any more about the grades of titanium, feel free to get in touch with the professionals, here at Ti-Tek!
Titanium is considered to be one of the most versatile metals, providing you with an extensive range of opportunities. Within our titanium supplies, you can expect to find titanium bars, coils, plates, rods and exhausts, enabling you to choose exactly what you need for your application.
High strength to low weight ratio.
Titanium is as strong as steel but weighs 45% less, making it a practical choice for various applications. As well as this, the titanium supplies that we provide are considered to be twice as strong as aluminium, making them more favourable.
High melting point.
Unlike steel and aluminium; titanium is a metal that is guaranteed to last! Here at Ti-Tek, we provide titanium to accommodate the requirements of various applications and with high melting points, you needn’t worry about our alloys being fit for purpose!
Titanium is a metal that’s ideal for an array of applications, one of the most common uses of the metal is for body jewellery and bone stability! Did you know that joint replacements, such as the hip and the knee, often use titanium? The metal can hold bones in place securely, preventing pain and discomfort and due to it low oxidative properties, it reacts slower than many other metals with the body, making it last longer.
