General information about titanium

Technical characteristics

Titanium is a silvery metal with a bluish cast, remarkable for its light weight (4,507 g/cm3), it melts at t° 1660 °C and boils at 3260 °C. It is a fairly common element, its content in the Earth's crust is about 0.60%. It is the fourth most common constructional metal, behind only iron, magnesium and aluminum. The chemical symbol for Ti. Ti was isolated by Klaproth in 1789 but because of brittle impurities it did not find practical use for a long time. Titanium obtained in the twenties of the twentieth century by de Boer and Van Arkel iodide proved to be a technological and ductile metal with many valuable advantages that attracted the attention of engineers and technologists. Today, thanks to improvements in metallurgical technologies, titanium can be purchased at an affordable price.

Titanium has a high specific strength and very high corrosion resistance. It is a valuable material in industries where lightweight and durable material is needed, primarily in aviation and missile construction. Titanium alloys have no alternative in the temperature range from 250°C to 600°C when magnesium and aluminum light alloys can no longer withstand the stresses. Owing to its resistance to corrosion in sea water, the metal is used extensively in shipbuilding to produce ship hulls, propellers, torpedoes, submarines, etc . Titanium alloys, especially BT5-1kt, are used in cryogenic equipment. VT1-0 grade is outstandingly resistant to corrosion at the temperature of up to 350°C. No less relevant is the alloy AT-3, which was developed at IMET of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR by I. I. Kornilov and collaborators. AT-3 has higher chemical resistance than other alloys (including BT1-0 and excellent antifriction properties. It is often used in contact with boiling formic, sulfuric, hydrochloric and phosphoric acids and in contact with hot alkalis. AT-3 successfully replaces nickel, platinum and gold alloys. After industrial tests of alloys like 4200 and 4201, they are recommended for use in the synthesis of tetrachlorides and amino acids.


Molten titanium actively interacts with atmospheric gases. It is quite difficult to separate it in the pure form; it is difficult to process, especially by cutting; it has a considerable cost price. Considerable difficulties are also connected with recycling of its wastes. Most titanium alloys are prone to hydrogen embrittlement. The antifriction properties of titanium are not high.
