Titanium alloy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Titanium alloys are metals which contain a mixture of titanium and other chemical elements. They have very high tensile strength and toughness. They are light in weight, resist corrosion very strongly and can withstand extreme temperatures.[1]

However, the cost of both raw materials and processing is very high.[1] Therefore, their use is limited to military applications, aircraft, spacecraft, medical devices, connecting rods on expensive sports cars and some high quality sports equipment and consumer electronics.
