Why Ti-Tek for titanium alloys?
On its own, titanium metal is great. It’s lightweight, strong, and naturally resistant to marine and chlorine corrosion. When compared to other metals, it has the highest strength to weight ratio and is said to be just as strong as steel but approximately 45% lighter. But how does this stack up against titanium alloys?
Titanium alloys are metallic biomaterials, made up of a mixture of titanium and other chemical elements (i.e. vanadium and aluminium). They are renowned for having high tensile strength and toughness – even at extreme temperatures – and further enhance the mechanical properties and corrosion resistance of raw titanium.
Ti-6Al-4V continues to be the workhorse of the titanium industry and has been used in airframes, landing gears, wings and gas turbines in aerospace for many years. But their uses don’t stop here.
Owing to their biocompatibility, high chemical stability and excellent mechanical properties, titanium alloys, such as Ti-6Al-4V, are often used for medical and dental implants, as well as the manufacture of cars and leisure equipment.
So, if you’re looking for top-quality titanium alloys, you need the expertise of an experienced titanium supplier – and, who better to choose than the team at Ti-Tek? Here are just three reasons why you should make us your first choice:
