Titanium: An Introduction
Due to its high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent corrosion resistance, titanium is the ideal metal for demanding applications.
The combination of these properties, as well as titanium’s high tensile strength, has led to titanium’s widespread use in aerospace, medical and defense applications.
