The difference between pure titanium and titanium alloy:
The titanium content is different and the density is different.
1. Different titanium content: pure titanium is a silver-white metal, and titanium alloys refer to various alloys of gold made of titanium and other metals.
2. Different densities: The density of titanium is 4.54g/cm3, which is 43% lighter than steel, higher than aluminum, but lower than steel, copper and nickel, and its specific strength ranks first among metals. The density of titanium alloys is usually about 4.51g/cm3, which is only 60% of steel. Pure titanium is a silver-white metal with many excellent properties, such as light weight, high strength, metallic luster, and resistance to wet chlorine corrosion. Titanium is lighter in density than steel, but has similar mechanical strength to steel, being twice as strong as aluminum and five times as strong as magnesium. Titanium is resistant to high temperatures and has a melting point of 1942K, which is nearly 1000K higher than gold and 500K higher than steel. Titanium alloys refer to various alloy metals made of titanium and other metals. Titanium alloys have the advantages of high strength, good corrosion resistance and high heat resistance. Titanium alloys make up only 60% of steel, and some high-strength titanium alloys are stronger than many alloyed structural steels.
