Application of titanium alloy in high technology field
Titanium is an attractive metal because it is stronger, lighter and more resistant to corrosion than stainless steel. But in general, titanium is too expensive for the mass market, so it is more often used in high-end or high-performance markets, such as aerospace, navigation, and sports competitions.
Due to the inertia and durability of titanium, titanium brand jewelry (especially titanium rings) began to become common, and also became the ideal material for watch cases.
In addition, some of the more expensive products, such as shovels, flashlights, sporks, etc., which are lightweight and corrosion resistant, are also made of titanium alloy.
Titanium processing, cutting, welding, electroplating and other production processes are very demanding. Especially in the cutting temperature is fast, easy to sintering on the tool. As a result, titanium has an image of being difficult to use, and many people think of it as a material that cannot be designed freely.
Titanium is highly anticipated in the field of medical and wearable terminals due to its affinity for the human body and its anti-rust function. So what is the creative appeal of this material?
Titanium has a rougher tone than aluminum and is brighter than stainless steel. Another feature is that other metals do not have, titanium can retain the metal texture at the same time, do not need spraying, can achieve a warm matte surface.
Creating such a matte surface requires another process called sandblasting. However, other materials are prone to rust or surface trachoma after this process. Therefore, only titanium, which is extremely resistant to corrosion, can achieve this texture.
