The use of titanium

Post  gill on Fri Dec 24, 2010 10:06 am


Titanium metal is used as an alloying agent with metals including aluminum, iron, molybdenum and manganese. Alloys of titanium are mainly used in aerospace, aircraft and engines where strong, lightweight, temperature-resistant materials are needed.
As it is resistant to seawater, titanium is used for hulls of ships, propeller shafts and other structures exposed to the sea.
Titanium is also used in joint replacement implants, such as the ball-and-socket hip joint.
About 95% of Titanium production is used to make titanium dioxide (titania). This intensely white pigment, with a high refractive index and strong UV light absorption, is used in white paint, food coloring, toothpaste, plastics and sunscreen.
Titanium is used in several everyday products such as drill bits, bicycles, golf clubs, watches and laptop computers.
