Application of Titanium in Automobile Engines

Application of Titanium in Automobile Engines

Titanium has the advantages of lightweight and high strength. When it is used as an internal combustion engine component, it can improve the performance of the machine. Titanium parts were first studied as racing motorcycle parts, but it is difficult to use titanium parts in mass-market applications because of the high price. In recent years, due to environmental issues, not only four-wheelers (cars), but also two-wheelers (motorcycles or mass-market cars) also had strict rules. People’s requirements for low-emission technology and…

3 Major Functions and 10 Characteristics of Titanium

3 Major Functions and 10 Characteristics of Titanium

Functional materials are engineering materials based on physical properties, that is, materials with special properties in electrical, magnetic, acoustic, optical, thermal, etc., or materials that exhibit special functions under their action. Studies on titanium and titanium alloys have found that they have three special functions for application: Memory function: Titanium-nickel alloy has a one-way, two-way and all-round memory effect at a certain ambient temperature and is recognized as the best memory alloy. Pipe joints for oil pressure systems for fighters;…

Several Facts about Titanium Alloy

Several Facts about Titanium Alloy

The various alloys we use in modern times generally have the characteristics of high hardness, light weight and strong corrosion resistance, which have played a big role in the modernization of society. Among so many alloys, there is an alloy that has excellent properties and is widely used, that is, titanium alloy. Here are several facts about titanium alloy. Although titanium is widely present on the earth, it is difficult to be exploited. As early as 1791, an amateur British…

Best Brazing Method for Titanium and Its Alloys

Best Brazing Method for Titanium and Its Alloys

Titanium alloy is an active metal, which is widely used in aerospace, petrochemical and atomic energy industries. The main problems in titanium and titanium alloy brazing are as follows: 1 The affinity of titanium and its alloy with oxygen is large, and a very stable oxide film is easily formed on the surface, so that the solder can be wetted and spread, so it must be removed during brazing. 2 Titanium and its alloys have a tendency to absorb hydrogen,…

Titanium Nitride Sputtering Target for Film Coating

Titanium Nitride Sputtering Target for Film Coating

The titanium nitride sputtering target is a thin film coating material used for metal parts to harden and protect the surface thereof. The titanium nitride sputtering target is made of titanium nitride and has a chemical formula of TiN, which is an extremely hard ceramic material. The wear and corrosion resistance of titanium nitride films is attributed to the good properties of their raw materials. In addition, the titanium nitride film can also be used for protection (due to its…

Titanium Rock Ore and Titanium Placer

Titanium Rock Ore and Titanium Placer

Titanium is very rich in reserves on the earth, with a crustal abundance of 0.61%, which is higher than common copper, nickel, tin, lead and zinc. There are about 140 kinds of known titanium minerals, but now only ten kinds have mining value. The titanium mineral deposits can be divided into two major categories: rock ore and placer.   Titanium Rock Ore Titanium Placer Characteristic Primary mine. They are basically symbiotic ores, including ilmenite, titanomagnetite and hematite. Secondary mine. Deposited…

3 Types of Coatings to Prevent Blockage of Titanium Alloy Pipes Used in Marine

3 Types of Coatings to Prevent Blockage of Titanium Alloy Pipes Used in Marine

Although titanium alloys have good corrosion resistance in seawater, the surface of the alloy is prone to grow marine animals, most of which are lime worms, algae and a small amount of oysters. After removing the marine organisms on the surface of the alloy, it was found that the surface of the titanium alloy was not corroded, which means that marine organisms and microorganisms would not cause corrosion to the titanium alloy. Therefore, preventing the blockage of titanium alloy pipes only considers…

Does Titanium Forging Affect the Performance of TC4 Titanium Alloys?

Does Titanium Forging Affect the Performance of TC4 Titanium Alloys?

TC4 titanium alloy is the most widely used a+β type titanium alloy. Due to its characteristics of high specific strength, good corrosion resistance and superior comprehensive performance, it is widely used in aerospace, chemical machinery, medical engineering and other industries. Common defects in TC4 titanium alloys include segregation and inclusion of alloying elements, residue of cast structure, embrittlement layer, hydrogen embrittlement, and brittleness and forging cracks. In recent years, more and more countries have begun to develop medium-strong and high-damage-tolerant…

Industrial Applications of the Valuable Metal Titanium

Industrial Applications of the Valuable Metal Titanium

The metal element titanium is widely distributed in the earth’s crust, and its content is about 0.4% of the crustal mass. The world reserve of titanium is about 3.4 billion tons and ranks 10th among all elements (oxygen, silicon, aluminum, iron, calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, hydrogen, titanium). Its abundant reserve provides a major source of raw materials for the production and development of titanium and titanium alloys. Since the 1950s, the types of titanium alloys have evolved from the 1954 Ti-6Al-4V alloy…

How Are NiTi Memory Alloys Used in the Medical Industry?

How Are NiTi Memory Alloys Used in the Medical Industry?

Nickel-titanium (NiTi) alloy is a kind of shape memory alloy, which is a special alloy that can automatically restore its original shape after its plastic deformation at a certain temperature. Its ratio of expansion and contraction can reach above 20%, while the fatigue life can be up to 1*10 seven times. In addition, its damping characteristics are 10 times higher than ordinary springs, and its corrosion resistance is better than the best medical stainless steel. Therefore, nickel-titanium alloy is a…
