Titanium metal has very good properties, it is light in weight but high in strength, it ranks first among metals, and it also has very high corrosion resistance. In aerospace, biomedical engineering and other fields, it has a very wide range of applications. So what is the difference between pure titanium and titanium alloy?
1. Pure titanium
Pure titanium is a silver-white metal with many excellent properties, such as light weight, high strength, metallic luster, and resistance to moisture and chlorine gas corrosion.
The density of titanium is lighter than that of steel, but its mechanical strength is almost the same as that of steel, twice that of aluminum and five times that of magnesium. Titanium is resistant to high temperatures, with a melting point of 1942K, which is nearly 1000K higher than gold and nearly 500K higher than steel.
2. Titanium alloy
Titanium alloy refers to a variety of 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 are only 60% of steel, and some high-strength titanium alloys exceed the strength of many alloy structural steels.
3. The difference between pure titanium and titanium alloy
(1).Different titanium content:
Pure titanium is a silver-white metal, while titanium alloy refers to a variety of alloy metals made of titanium and other metals.
(2).The density is different:
The density of titanium is 4.54g/cubic centimeter, 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 alloy is generally around 4.51g/cubic centimeter, which is only 60% of steel. Titanium and titanium alloys are extremely important lightweight structural materials, which have very important application value and broad application prospects in the fields of aviation, aerospace, vehicle engineering, and biomedical engineering.
