Titanium is a rare and strategically important industrial metal with superior physical and chemical properties. Titanium symbol Ti is a transition metal with atomic number 22. It is found in 4 periods in the periodic table. Silver is a bright white element. It is the sixth (6) most abundant element in the earth's crust. Titanium is known for its high strength-to-weight ratio. It is a light metal of low density (4.51 g / cm3). It is useful in terms of being a durable metal with its high melting point (1660 0C). The most important chemical property of titanium is its resistance against corrosion. We can say that it is an element that is almost as resistant as Pt. Acids, chlorine gas, it shows resistance when exposed to alkaline solutions. It is also an element with low paramagnetic, electrical and thermal conductivity. Pure titanium has a hexagonal crystal structure. However, it has a good formability feature. It was found in nature as rutile TiO2 or FeTiO3 by William McGregor in 1789. Obtained by Hunter. Titanium formability is easily affected by soluble gases such as oxygen, nitrogen, and hydrogen. Due to this, it is difficult and costly to purify titanium and make it ready to use.Although titanium is the most widely used metal in the world after iron, aluminum and magnesium, it is quite, expensive and until recently little known. Due to the high strength-to-weight ratio and corrosion-resistant properties of Ti alloys, jet engines were produced for military aviation in the 1950s, followed by applications such as ship propellers, submarine hulls, surgical implants, oil drilling. Titanium minerals are frequently used in the paper, plastic and paint industry. Titanium is an element that has an important place in the production of pigments that make up the colors of all objects. It increases the brightness of the papers and decreases their transparency. For this reason, titanium pigment is used in photo papers. 91 percent of the world's titanium ore production is used in the pigment industry (57 percent of this rate is used in the paint industry) and 6 percent is used in the metal industry. 3 percent is distributed to other sectors. Titanium has recently become a sought-after item in kitchen products. Especially pans and pots started to be produced with titanium and its alloys. Titanium products, which enter the kitchens as a new trend among healthy cooking methods, offer an alternative for easy cooking with their non-stick coatings. Titanium is preferred for quality pans and pots due to its lightweight, non-corrosive and heat-resistant properties. Titanium pans, which are about 50 percent lighter than steel pans and 60 percent heavier than aluminum, contain more durable features than both metals.
If we list other products and areas where titanium is used as follows; vehicle engine parts, engine turbine blades, submarine hulls, chemical producing parts of factories, cosmetics, linoleum, silk, white ink, colored glass, ceramics, leather and fabric paints, chemical resistant articles, window frames, paper fillers and coatings , welding electrodes, electric arcs, varnish, polish, petrochemicals, treatment plants, dental implants, dental materials, prostheses, jewelery and jewelry, watches, glasses, mobile phones, cameras, sports products. As a company, we carry out titanium coating PVD coating for our products. We are progressing by strengthening the mechanical and chemical properties of your products as well as adding aesthetic benefit.
