Searching for a titanium exhaust? The type that can shave kilograms off the weight of your vehicle? Be sure to check out our range, here at Ti-Tek.
We are a leading UK supplier of this strong yet lightweight type of exhaust system – specifically designed to enhance the overall performance of motorsport vehicles.
Titanium Vs stainless steel
If a stainless steel exhaust isn’t posh enough for you, our titanium exhausts are certainly worth a look. Typically made from metal alloys, the titanium exhaust is 45% lighter than its steel counterpart, which explains why you’ll often see race cars with this type of exhaust as every bit of weight counts.
Weight savings aside; titanium is extremely strong. In fact, the same thickness titanium tube is twice as durable as an identical piece of stainless steel – meaning that a thin, lightweight titanium tube can be used to manufacture the exhaust without sacrificing any strength. This makes the titanium exhaust one of the strongest and lightest on the market today.
As a bonus, a titanium exhaust turns a nice blue colour once heated – giving it a more flashy look. There’s also a distinct difference in tone between the titanium and stainless steel exhaust. The thinner walls in titanium make for a more aggressive, metallic sound.
Titanium exhaust technology
Here at Ti-Tek, we are delighted to supply Titanium KSTi-1.2 ASNEX – the number one technology behind lightweight performance exhaust systems for cars and motorbikes alike.
Owing to high-temperature oxidation resistance between 700 and 800°C and excellent fatigue properties, KSTi-1.2 ASNEX titanium is perfect for the manufacture of exhausts.
The characteristics of the titanium exhaust technology are very similar to those of Grade 2 titanium – offering excellent formability and a remarkable combination of strength, ductility, and weldability.
We currently stock the titanium exhaust tubes in 1.2mm wall thicknesses and a choice of sizes, ranging from 40mm, right up to 80mm OD (outside diameter), however, bespoke sizes can also be made to order. As well as tubes, we also stock KSTi-1.2 ASNEX in sheets of 0.9mm x 1250mm x 3000mm and 1.2mm x 1250mm x 3000mm.
Are titanium exhausts worth it?
This depends on the vehicle, and the size of your wallet, of course. However, if you’re building a race car that would benefit from the exceptional weight difference of an all-titanium exhaust and you can justify the price for the look and exotic sound – we’d highly recommend you go for a titanium exhaust.
