Chemical element with Symbol Ti, Atomic number 22, atomic weight 47.9. It has a density of 4,45 g/cm melting at 1680°C and boiling-point beyond 3000°C.
After the second war, the creation of missiles and supersonic airplanes led to the search for metallic materials with specific features, the alloys and metals commonly used did not resist the high temperatures of the jet engines and the friction of the air at very high speed.
Titanium alloys, and metals commonly used did not resist the high temperatures of the jet engines and the friction of the air at very high speed.Titanium alloys, which are lighter than steel, but much more resistant, helped to overcome these difficulties. In addition, titanium is resistant to the corrosion of many acids, salt water, etc.
This is why it is used for tubes and valves, for covering of chemical plants and for exposed part of ships.
