Titanium Sponge Description:


Titanium sponge is a porous, brittle form of titanium, a highly ductile metal which has a high strength-to-weight ratio. Titanium has low thermal and electrical conductivity and is one of the most corrosion-resistant structural metals. Sponge is an intermediate product used to produce titanium ingot, which in turn is used to make slab, billet, bar, plate, sheet, and other titanium mill products.

Titanium Typical Applications:

1) Constituent in pyrotechnic fuses and combustible compositions, photographic/ignition pastes, glass to metal or ceramic to metal joining material, gas turbine engines, intermetallic compositions, ship structures, pumps. Deep-sea submersibles, condensers, airframes, water-jet propulsion systems, weapons, systems, flue gas desulphurization, steam turbines, fan blades, piping systems, compressor discs, heat exchangers, wing structures, vessels, tanks, agitators, eyeglass frames, medical implants, nuclear waste storage, valves, springs, connecting rods, jewelry and sports equipment.


2) Because of its high strength-to-weight ratio, titanium and its alloys are widely used in both aerospace and non-aerospace applications.

  1. a) Aerospace applications include: use in gas turbine engines for both military and commercial aircraft (where use of titanium results in reduced engine weight while maintaining strength), airframes, and in various applications in missiles and space vehicles. In most aircraft engines, titanium-based alloy parts account for 20-30 percent of engine weight.
  2. b) Non-aerospace applications include: use in specialty chemical, pulp and paper, oil and gas, marine, medical, and consumer goods industries. Aerospace uses for titanium constitute the largest market for titanium, with commercial and military aerospace applications consuming 65 percent of titanium mill product shipments in 1997.
