Titanium Grades:- S.P STEELS Supplies Titanium In Different Grades. We Have Titanium Grade 1, Grade 2, Grade 5, Grade 7, Grade 9, And Grade 12. Titanium And Its Alloys Have Proven To Be Technically Superior And Cost-Effective Materials Of Construction For A Wide Variety Of Aerospace, Industrial,Surgical Implants, Gold Refinery, Anodising Plants, Heater For Industrial Use, Marine And Commercial Applications. In North America, Approximately 70% Of The Titanium Consumed Is Utilized For Aerospace Applications.Due To The Expansion Of Existing Applications And The Development Of New Uses, The Greatest Growth Will Occur In The Industrial, Marine And Commercial Sectors Titanium is as strong as steel but much less density. It is therefore important as an alloying agent with many metals including aluminium, molybdenum and iron. These alloys are mainly used in aircraft, spacecraft and missiles because of their low density and ability to withstand extremes of temperature. They are also used in golf clubs, laptops, bicycles and crutches. Power plant condensers use titanium pipes because of their resistance to corrosion. Because titanium has excellent resistance to corrosion in seawater, it is used in desalination plants and to protect the hulls of ships, submarines and other structures exposed to seawater. Titanium metal connects well with bone, so it has found surgical applications such as in joint replacements (especially hip joints) and tooth implants. The largest use of titanium is in the form of titanium(IV) oxide. It is extensively used as a pigment in house paint, artists’ paint, plastics, enamels and paper. It is a bright white pigment with excellent covering power. It is also a good reflector of infrared radiation and so is used in solar observatories where heat causes poor visibility. Titanium (IV) oxide is used in sunscreens because it prevents UV light from reaching the skin. Nanoparticles of titanium (IV) oxide appear invisible when applied to the skin.
The Properties And Characteristics Of Titanium Which Are Important To Design Engineers In A Broad Spectrum Of Industries Are:
- Excellent Corrosion Resistance: Titanium Is Immune To Corrosive Attack By Salt Water Or Marine Atmosphere. It Also Exhibits Exceptional Resistance To A Broad Range Of Acids , Alkalis, Natural Waters And Industrial Chemicals.
- Superior Erosion Resistance: Titanium Offers Superior Resistance To Corrosion, Cavitation Or ImpingemnetAatack. Titanium Is Atleast 20 Times More Erosion Resistance Than Copper Nickel Alloys.
- High Heat Transfer Efficiency: Under”In Service” Conditions, The Heat Transfer Properties Of Titanium Approximate Those Of Admirately Brass And Copper Nickel.There Are Several Reasons For This: 1) Titanium’s Higher Strength Permits The Use For Thinner Walled Equipment. 2) There Appears To Be Unusual And Benefical Characteristics In Titanium’s Inherent Oxide Film. 3) The Relative Absence Of Corrosion In Media Where Titanium Is Generally Used Leaves The Surface Bright And Smooth For Improved Lamellar Flow. 4) Titanuim’s Excellent Erosion-Corrosion Resistance Permits Significantly Higher Operating Velocities.
- Superior Strength to weight Ratios: The Densities Of Titanium-Based Alloys Range Between 160 Lb/In3 (4.43gm/Cm3) And 175lb/In3 (4.85 Gm/Cm3). Yield Strengths Range From 25,000 Psi (172 Mpa ) Commercially Pure (Cp) Grade 1 To Above 200,000 Psi (1380 Mpa) For Heat Threated Beta Alloys. The Combination Of High Strength And Low Density Results In Exceptionally Favorable Strength-To-Weigth Ratios For Titanium Based Alloys. These Ratios For Titanium Based Alloys Are Superior To Almost All Other Metals And Become Important In Such Diverse Applications As Deepwell Tube Strings In The Petroleum Industry And Surgical Implants In The Medical Field.
