THE WROUGHT product forms of titanium and titanium-base alloys, which include forgings and the typical mill products, constitute (on a weight basis) more than 70% of the market in titanium and titanium-alloy production. Various specifications for wrought titanium-base products are listed in Table.

General Characteristics. Titanium is a low-density element (? 4.5 g/cm3, which is about 60% of the density of iron) that can be highly strengthened by alloying and deformation processing. Titanium is nonmagnetic and has good heat-transfer properties.

TITANIUM ALLOYS were originally developed in the early 1950s for aerospace applications in which their high strength-to-density ratios were especially attractive.

TITANIUM has been recognized as an element for 200 years. Only in the last 40 years or so, however, has the metal gained strategic importance. In that time, commercial production of titanium and titanium alloys in the United States has increased from zero to more than 23 million kg/yr (50 million lb/yr).

TITANIUM AND ITS ALLOYS can be formed in standard machines to tolerances similar to those obtained in the forming of stainless steel.

Titanium metal passes through three major steps during processing from ore to finished product: (1) reduction of titanium ore to a porous form of titanium metal called "sponge," (2) melting of sponge and scrap to form ingot, and (3) remelting and casting into finished shape, or primary fabrication, in which ingots are converted into general mill

Titanium is a lightweight metal (approximately 60% of the density of iron) that can be highly strengthened by alloying and deformation processing. Titanium is nonmagnetic and has good heat-transfer properties. Its coefficient of thermal expansion is somewhat lower than that of steels and less than half that of aluminum.

Pure titanium and titanium alloys are allotropic. Pure titanium reversibly transforms from α, the hexagonal close-packed crystallographic form stable at room temperature, to β, the body centered cubic crystallographic form stable above 882 °C (1620 °F), which is the transus temperature for commercially pure titanium. It remains as stable b to the melting point.
