Titanium is a unique metal with many favorable properties including its strength, durability, rust and corrosion resistance and its lightweight. It can withstand extreme temperatures as well as other harsh environments such as those involving salt water and chemicals. Titanium tubes can last many decades without much (or any) upkeep and maintenance.
There are 31 types, or grades, of titanium that can be used for different projects. The most popular grade of titanium used for most everyday business projects is Grade 2 and Grade 5. The right grade of titanium for you will be determined by your project.
You may have looked around comparing prices of different metals and alloys. You want something that will last suit your company’s unique tubing needs. While the biggest deterrent companies have towards using titanium is the steep up-front cost.
Titanium is generally more expensive than other popular tubing metals such as steel and aluminum. However, titanium suppliers will tell their customers and would-be customers that the high, initial cost of titanium tubing and products is worth it and pays off in the long run. Titanium tubing can last many decades without much attention, care and repair.
Other metals, on the other, hand may be cheaper but only because they aren’t as strong and durable as titanium. Steel and aluminum tubing don’t last as long and they require more upkeep to keep them in proper working condition. Because of their increased vulnerability and weakening in harsh and extreme conditions, regular repairs are often required.
While titanium costs more up-front, it is a long-term investment that quickly pays off and makes up for the extra up-front costs.
Even if you’ve never worked with titanium or ordered it before, chances are you’ve seen it and have a preconceived idea of what it should look like.
Titanium tubing and parts that are properly manufactured will have a uniform, shiny, metallic look to it. This uniformed look indicates the part was properly welded and that none of the tubing’s integrity, structure, strength, and durability has been compromised.
Most consumers of titanium products are in the military, chemical and manufacturing industries. A simple titanium pipe failure can potentially damage their business.
