Titanium in the racing industry
Titanium is the metal of choice for engineers when building top quality motorcars. Here at Ti-Tek, we have a passion for the racing industry and take pride in supplying teams with the titanium products required to improve performance and meet the critical weight restrictions imposed across the racing circuit. But exactly what makes titanium so great for the racing industry?
Why is titanium used?
Whether it be for kart racing, air racing, motorcycling or even drone racing, titanium is abundant within the racing industry. One of the main reasons why it’s used is because teams are always looking for speed and this can be achieved by swapping heavy materials for metals with a lower density.
Driver protection is also a number one priority for engineers. Titanium rods allow them to build lightweight vehicles with the added benefit of high strength, flexibility and heat resistance – without compromising performance or kerb appeal.
Using titanium rods to manufacture motorcars, reduces the overall weight of vehicles, which in turn cuts down on fuel consumption – great for fuel economy and the environment!
How is titanium used in motorsport?
Common uses of titanium within vehicles include:
- connecting rods
- engine valves
- exhaust tubing
With so many beneficial qualities, titanium rods don’t come cheap and are therefore limited to racing cars and top of the range road vehicles. At Ti-Tek, we source all our materials from approved mills and guarantee excellent value for money.
