Does your business rely on titanium metal?
Ti-Tek is a leading UK titanium supplier and has been the first choice of various industrial clients for many years. No matter how big or small your project, we can provide you with the titanium you need to keep things moving.
Titanium is a metal that’s renowned for its excellent strength and reliability. This strong – yet lightweight – material has a high melting and boiling point and provides good resistance to corrosion and electricity.
Boasting such properties, titanium metal lends itself to a diverse range of industrial applications. It can be alloyed with other metallic elements (e.g. aluminium, iron, molybdenum, etc.) and fabricated into all manner of useful parts and fittings.
Here we look at some of the most common uses of titanium:
Due to its high-strength (and lightweight), many aerospace manufacturers use titanium metal to build aircraft that can withstand varying pressures and extreme environments. It’s also found in jet engines, missiles and other similar structures.
Titanium is the metal of choice for many OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) and car manufacturers as it can help vehicles to accelerate faster. It’s typically used to construct high-end and race cars, as well as axles, brake calipers, exhaust systems and connecting rods.
Titanium metal is a staple in the medical field. Biocompatible, non-toxic and non-allergenic, it is regularly used to make surgical instruments, prosthetics, orthopaedic devices and dental implants. It can be found in wheelchairs and stretchers too.
Bike frames, tennis rackets, golf clubs and helmet grills are all examples of sporting goods that are constructed from titanium. You can find out more about what makes titanium great for sports in our blog post.
- Industrial processes
Resistant to corrosive substances, titanium metals are often used at chemical and petrochemical plants. But that’s not all. They come in useful at desalinisation plants – protecting the hull of ships and submarines which are exposed to salty seawater.
