Titanium a tough material
Titanium - very strong with low thermal expansion
The element with atomic number 22 combines several unique properties. With a density of only 4.50 g/cm³ it is exceptionally light, yet it is considered one of the toughest and most resilient metals in the world. Impacts and shocks do not affect parts made of titanium. Added to this is its extremely low expansion when exposed to heat. Despite its relatively high melting point (1,727°C), pure titanium is not recommended for high-temperature applications, as even between 400-600°C some changes in the physical properties occur and titanium begins to react with its surroundings, which can lead to inflammations and even explosions.
Titanium alloys make almost every material hard
Alloys with titanium components are to be viewed quite differently. Here, even the smallest amounts of titanium provide decisive improvements in the strength of the materials. One example is the microalloying of steel. Even in concentrations as low as 0.01-0.1 percent by mass, titanium gives steel high toughness, strength and ductility, i.e. malleability, without breaking. Despite their relatively high price, titanium alloys are the first choice for a wide range of applications, from outdoor sports articles such as golf clubs to titanium protective vests for the military.
You can get titanium from E.WAGENER pure or as a component
We do not just offer you titanium. At E.WAGENER, you can decide for yourself how pure the material should be delivered. We offer you 90, 95 or even >99 pure titanium. Direct further processing into blocks, wires, foils, sheets or rods is also possible. We can even produce drawing parts according to your specifications. Especially here you can benefit from E.Wagener's many years of experience with special materials. We know what matters.
