High-purity titanium sponge
is a type of titanium that is 99.9% pure or higher. It is usually produced by the Kroll process, which involves the reduction of titanium tetrachloride with magnesium. 3N grade sponge titanium refers to a specific level of purity, "3N" means a purity of 99.9%. This grade of titanium sponge is known for its exceptional purity and low levels of impurities, making it ideal for use in applications requiring high corrosion resistance and strength. Some of the key properties of 3N grade titanium sponge include:
High Strength: Titanium is known for its high strength-to-weight ratio, while 3N grade sponge titanium has even higher strength levels due to its exceptional purity.
Corrosion resistance: Titanium has strong corrosion resistance, and 3N grade sponge titanium has stronger corrosion resistance due to its low impurity content.
Light weight: 3N grade sponge titanium has low density, light weight and easy processing.
Biocompatibility: 3N grade titanium sponge is biocompatible for medical implants and other applications where the material comes into contact with living tissue.
Non-toxic: Titanium is a non-toxic material, 3N grade sponge titanium is extremely pure, and can be safely used in a wide range of applications.
Non-magnetic: 3N grade sponge titanium is non-magnetic and suitable for occasions where magnetism needs to be considered.
