Titanium is stable in air at normal temperature, because titanium has the advantages of small density, large strength, high temperature resistance, low temperature resistance, corrosion resistance and so on. The strength of titanium alloy is higher than that of steel. The titanium plate made of pure titanium has the advantages of high strength, small density, good mechanical properties, good toughness and good corrosion resistance. In addition, the process performance of titanium plate is poor, and the machining is difficult. It is easy to absorb hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon and other impurities in hot working. And poor abrasion resistance, complex production process. The industrial production of titanium began in 1948. The development of the aviation industry requires the titanium industry to grow at an average annual rate of about 8%. At present, the world's annual output of titanium plate processing has reached more than 4 tons, titanium plate nearly 30 kinds. The most widely used titanium plates are Ti-6Al-4V, Ti-5Al-2.5Sn and industrial pure titanium.
The titanium plate is mainly used to make the compressor parts of aircraft engines, followed by rockets, missiles and high-speed aircraft structures. In the mid 60s, titanium and its alloys have been used in general industries to produce electrodes for the electrolytic industry, condensers for power stations, heaters for petroleum refining and desalination, and environmental pollution control devices.
Titanium alloys have good heat resistance, low temperature toughness and fracture toughness, so they are used as aircraft engine parts and rocket and missile structures. Titanium alloys can also be used as fuel and oxidizer storage tanks as well as high pressure vessels. Now there is a titanium alloy for manufacturing automatic rifles, launch tube mortar base plate and recoilless guns. In the oil industry, mainly for all kinds of containers, reactors, heat exchangers, distillation tower, pipes, pumps and valves. Titanium can be used as condensers for electrodes and power plants, as well as environmental pollution control devices. In medical treatment, titanium can be used as artificial bones and various implements. Titanium plate is a new kind of important structural materials used in aerospace industry, the proportion between the strength and temperature between aluminum and steel, but has high strength and excellent anti-corrosion properties and low temperature properties. In 1950, the United States for the first time in the F-84 fighter bombers as a rear fuselage insulation panels, wind shield, tail cover and other non load components. Beginning in 60s, the use of titanium panels shifted from the rear fuselage to the middle fuselage, partially replacing the structural steel.
