Titanium Alloy Properties and Applications

Titanium alloy is one kind of alloy which is based on titanium and is added other elements.

Titanium alloy is featured by high strength and low density, good mechanical properties, good toughness and excellent corrosion resistance. While, titanium alloy has poor processing property. It is difficult to cut and machine titanium alloy. In the hot processing, titanium is easily to absorb nitrogen and carbon, hydrogen and oxygen and other impurities. In addition, titanium alloy also is characterized by poor abrasion resistance and complex manufacturing technique. Industrial production of titanium started in 1948. The need of the development of the aviation industry makes titanium industry grow at an annual growth rate of about 8%.

Titanium alloy is mainly used for manufacturing compressor components of aircraft engine. In addition, titanium alloy also can be applied to produce rockets, missiles and structure parts of high-speed aircraft. In 1960s, titanium and titanium alloys have been applied in the general industry and used for making electrode for electrolytic industry, condenser of power station, heat installation for petroleum refining and seawater desalination and environmental pollution control devices. Titanium and titanium alloys have become a corrosion resistant structural materials. In addition, titanium and titanium alloys also are used for producing hydrogen storage materials and shape memory alloys. From 1956, China started the study of titanium and titanium alloy; From 1960s, China began titanium industrial production and successfully produced TB2 alloy.

Titanium alloy is a new important structural materials used in aerospace industry. Titanium alloy has high specific strength and excellent seawater corrosion resistance performance and low temperature performance.
