Do you know the strength of the titanium coil?

With the rapid development of modern science and technology and the needs of national economic construction, the demand for various titanium tubes in various industrial sectors is increasing, and the specifications and technical requirements for titanium tubes are becoming higher and higher. In particular, with the development of the market economy, various industries require more titanium tubes of various specifications. Although the use of titanium tubes varies, the overall requirements for titanium tubes are the same, that is, both the processing conditions and the end use require that the titanium tubes have the dimensional specifications, accuracy, and corresponding properties and surface finishes that are suitable for the purpose. Various quality indicators. Whether the quality of the titanium tube can meet the various requirements put forward by the user units on the titanium tube will directly affect the economic interests of the user or the processing industry and the economic benefits and reputation of the unit.

Titanium has plasticity. The high-purity titanium has an elongation of 50 to 60% and a reduction in area of 70 to 80%.

Despite the low strength of high-purity titanium, pure industrial titanium contains a small amount of impurities and the addition of alloying elements can significantly enhance its mechanical properties, making its strength comparable to high strength. This means that industrial pure titanium tubes, as long as they contain a small amount of interstitial impurities and other metal impurities, can be made to have both high strength and proper plasticity.

The specific strength (strength to weight ratio) of industrial pure titanium tubes is very high in metal structural materials, and its strength is comparable to steel, but its weight is only 57% of steel. In addition, the titanium tube is highly heat resistant and maintains good strength and stability in the atmosphere at 500 °C. The titanium tube also has good low temperature resistance, and even at an ultra-low temperature of -250 °C, it has high impact strength and can withstand high pressure and vibration.

Another remarkable feature of the industrial pure titanium tube is its high corrosion resistance. This is because it has a particularly high affinity for oxygen and can form a dense oxide film on its surface to protect the titanium from the medium. Therefore, titanium has excellent stability in acidic, basic, neutral salt aqueous solutions and oxidizing media, and is superior in corrosion resistance to existing stainless steels and other non-ferrous metals.
