Titanium is one of the most durable metals on the planet. Its combination of high strength and low density makes it the material of choice for numerous applications, including the aerospace and medical industries. As an experienced titanium machining company, Reading Plastic & Metal can deliver the high-quality, dependable parts you need on time and on budget. All of our parts must pass a thorough, ISO 9001:2015 certified inspection before shipping, and we are comfortable working with a variety of standards, including FDA, Aviation and Department of Defense standards.
The chief benefit of titanium is its high strength-to-weight ratio. It is 45 percent lighter than steel, but just as strong, with an ultimate tensile strength equal to or better than most steel alloys. Conversely, titanium is 60 percent more dense than aluminum, but it is over twice as strong. This makes titanium the ideal solution for applications that require high strength and lightweight.
Titanium has excellent corrosion resistance and can withstand extended exposure to dilute sulfuric and hydrochloric acids, chloride solutions, and most organic acids. It is ductile (able to undergo change of form without breaking) and erosion resistant, and has limited condensation, low adhesion, and high energy absorption. Titanium is also well-suited to high temperature applications thanks to its low thermal conductivity. Its high fatigue limit means titanium parts deliver a long working life, even in challenging applications and environments.
Because titanium resists corrosion from bodily fluids, it is considered to be the most biocompatible metal (not harmful or toxic to living tissue). Titanium is non-toxic, even in large doses, and it is able to bond with bone, giving it an advantage over materials that require adhesion to remain attached. And because titanium is non-magnetic, patients can safely undergo MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) testing, making titanium components ideal for long-term or permanent medical implants.
With the ability to withstand harsh, extreme environments, titanium parts are perfect for challenging applications such as those in the aerospace, medical, marine, oil & gas, chemical processing, and water treatment industries. In fact, two thirds of all produced titanium goes into aircraft engines and airframes. Titanium parts can also be found in:
