Titanium Plate applications

Titanium Plate is one of the strongest metal plates used across various industries. The ductility, strength and corrosion resistance properties of titanium make it suitable for many high temperature, high pressure and anticorrosive applications. The applications include aerospace, oil and gas, food processing, medical and chemical industries. The high temperature resistance and high wear and tear resistance make the titanium be used in exhausts an turbine blades. Titanium plate can withstand immense corrosion risk and can be used in construction and transportation panels. It is also used in oil, chemical and food containers due to its very high oxidation resistance. The material is available in different grades.

The grading is based on the alloying of the element. Some grades are just commercially pure titanium such as the grade 2. Other grades have alloying elements in different quantities. The alloy materials could be nickel, chromium, molybdenum, vanadium, manganese and others. Depending on the nature of the application and the requirements, the alloying elements and the mechanical properties vary. The titanium sheet is produced in larger scales for ease of storage and sales. The sheets are also sold in square foot. The material could be used in cut sizes according to the needs. The higher grades or the pure grades are used to provide high strength and extra corrosion resistance. The making of jewelries and other anticorrosive accessories is one of the common uses of commercially pure titanium. The titanium grade 2 plate is pure and the prices vary according to the market demand, supply, stocks and other factors.
