Titanium alloy is a relatively young metal, from being developed to now only six, to seven decades of history, into the 20th century after traditional steel and aluminum could not meet the needs of aerospace, aviation, navigation, and other fields, in 1954 by the United States company developed a titanium alloy material.

Titanium alloy is based on titanium with the addition of other elements of the alloy, titanium alloy materials with light weight, strength, elasticity, high temperature, corrosion resistance, etc., mainly used in aircraft engines, rockets, missiles, components, the general industry will also use titanium, titanium grade also has a lot, different industries will choose the right grade of titanium according to the requirements. I believe that many people know this material because of a popular phrase - "blind my titanium eyes"! Many countries around the world have recognized the importance of titanium alloy materials, and have successively researched and developed them, and have been practically applied. Take a look at the application of titanium in design.
