Titanium is an inert metal alloy that is usually combined with aluminum, steel, manganese and molybdenum. A titanium alloy is almost as strong as steel but forty five percent lighter. Titanium fasteners are used in the aircraft industry in a great quantity because they reduce the weight of the aircraft and are corrosion resistant.
Titanium fasteners such as screws are also corrosion resistant because of the oxide layer that forms on titanium alloys. This layer is the main reason for the extensive use of titanium in many industries. An amazing fact about this layer is that it is automatically replaced if scratched or removed. Fasteners and screws undergo tremendous amount of scratching and friction and this is the reason why titanium is used in the manufacturing of such products.
The oxide layer that forms on the fastener protects it from corrosion thus making it durable and sturdy. Titanium fasteners also include bolts, washers, nuts, and flanges. These types of fasteners are used in sports, petrochemical industries, and oil industries. Another advantage of titanium is that it is heavier compared to steel. This is an important feature in fasteners because a heavy fastener or screw can hold more weight compared to a stainless steel fastener.
Titanium fasteners are also used in grand prix racecars' wheels. This is because of their lightweight and adherence properties. A titanium screw will adhere to any surface after some time because of the oxide layer that forms automatically on the surface of the metal. Titanium also has astounding galvanizing properties, which means that it can be mixed with many metals such as aluminum and steel to form an alloy that is suitable for the purpose that it serves.
The price of titanium fasteners ranges from $0.18 to$10 per piece. The price varies according to the size and the metal that it is combined with. Titanium fasteners are a good option for those who want the structure to be durable, stable, and long lasting.
