Titanium is a transition metal and occurs relatively frequently worldwide. As it usually only occurs in the form of oxides, it was not discovered until 1791 by William Gregor, an English priest and mineralogist.
Even the addition of small amounts of titanium can significantly increase the ductility and strength of steel. In addition, workpieces made of titanium-alloyed steels are better formable and show greater resistance to intergranular corrosion.
Applications of titanium steel
- Plants for the offshore industry
- Components for ships
- Chemical plants
- Turbines and boilers
- Sporting Goods
- Medical implants
