Commercially Pure (CP) Titanium and Titanium alloys offer a unique combination of strength, weight and corrosion resistance. Developed in the 1950s for defense and aeronautical applications, Titanium alloys provide a high strength-to-weight ratio, while bridging the gap between the properties of steel and aluminum. Over the years, increased production has lowered costs for these materials, allowing them to be used across a wide variety of industries.
CP Titanium, Ti 6Al-4V and Ti 6Al-4V ELI, Ti-Pd and Titanium Grade 12 are the most common titanium alloys used in industry; however, United Titanium carries additional grades with limited availability for more specialized circumstances.
Through innovation across diverse markets, titanium alloys comprise a variety of applications including: satellites, plating racks, cryogenic storage vessels, saline water conversion units, wet chlorine gas piping, seawater pumps, pulp and paper production, airplanes, high-current superconductors and off-shore drilling equipment. They’re also utilized in consumer goods such as yachts, jewelry, eyeglass frames and golf clubs. Titanium remains the material of choice for the medical and dental industry for implants, pacemakers, as well as hip and knee replacements.
