Pure titanium is a silver-white metal, it has many excellent properties, its density is 4.54g / cm3, only 43% of steel, it’s a little heavier than metal magnesium. Mechanical strength is excellent as steel, in strength, twice than aluminum, five times larger than magnesium. Titanium with high temperature, melting point 1942K, nearly 1000K higher than gold, and nearly 500K higher than the steel.
Titanium is a relatively lively metal chemical properties. Heating with O2, N2, H2, S and halogen and other non-metallic role. But at room temperature, the titanium surface is easy to produce a layer of very thin dense oxide protective film, can resist strong acid and even the role of aqua regia, showing strong corrosion resistance. Therefore, the general metal in the acid, alkali, salt solution becomes riddled, but the titanium is safe and sound.
Liquid titanium dissolves most of the metals, so it can be alloys with a variety of metals. The steel when merged with titanium will be much more tough and elastic. Titanium and metal Al, Sb, Be, Cr, Fe, etc. to generate interstitial compounds or intermetallic compounds.
As the small proportion of titanium, with high strength, corrosion resistance, high temperature performance and other advantages etc., it is widely used in aviation, aerospace, weapons, ships, chemicals, petrochemicals, metallurgy, power plants, salt, marine engineering, construction , Textile, electronics, pharmaceutical, medical, sports and other fields.
So titanium and titanium alloy is called "the third metal", also known as "the 21st century metal."
