Corrosion Resistance of Titanium

Since titanium metal first became a commercial reality in 1950, corrosion resistance has been an important consideration in its selection as an engineering structural material. Titanium has gained acceptance in many media where its corrosion resistance and engineering properties have provided the corrosion and design engineer with a reliable and economic material.

This brochure summarizes the corrosion resistance data accumulated in over forty years of laboratory testing and application experience. The corrosion data were obtained using generally acceptable testing methods; however, since service conditions may be dissimilar, TIMET recommends testing under the actual anticipated operating conditions.

Corrosion Resistant Titanium

ATI offers corrosion-resistant commercially pure titanium produced as plate, sheet, and strip products. Titanium’s low density and high strength-to-weight ratio make it the material of choice for many corrosive chemical environments, including oxidizing chloride solutions (including seawater) and chlorine-based bleaches. ATI titanium has excellent resistance to corrosion in a wide variety of environments including seawater, salt brines, inorganic salts, bleaches, wet chlorine, alkaline solutions, oxidizing acids, and organic acids. Titanium is incompatible with fluorides, strong reducing acids, very strong caustic solutions, and anhydrous chlorine. Due to its combustibility, titanium is not suitable for pure oxygen service. Titanium does not release any toxic ions into aqueous solutions, thus helping to prevent pollution.

Titanium Alloy Guide

Titanium has been recognized as an element (Symbol Ti; atomic number 22; and atomic weight 47.9) for at least 200 years. However, commercial production of titanium did not begin until the 1950’s. At that time, titanium was recognized for its strategic importance as a unique lightweight, high strength alloyed, structurally efficient metal for critical, high-performance aircraft, such as jet engine and airframe components. The worldwide production of this originally exotic, “Space Age” metal and its alloys has since grown to more than 50 million pounds annually.

Increased metal sponge and mill product production capacity and efficiency, improved manufacturing technologies, a vastly expanded market base and demand have dramatically lowered the price of titanium products. Today, titanium alloys are common, readily available engineered metals that compete directly with stainless and specialty steels, copper alloys, nickel- based alloys and composites.
