sponge is a porous, brittle form of titanium, a highly ductile metal
which has a high strength-to-weight ratio.
has low thermal and electrical conductivity and is one of the most
corrosion-resistant structural metals.
is used to produce parts for jet engines, missiles, orthopedic
implants, jewelry and mobile telephones.
- The most
important properties of titanium are its low density and high level
of corrosion resistance.
six times as expensive as steel, titanium is very resistant to
corrosion in both sea water and chlorinated water, making it popular
with a wide range of manufacturers.
is going to be the metal of the 21st century as huge quanties of the
metal will be required for the production of aircraft, submarines,
defence equipments and several other things.
Titanium sponge metal was produced by four operations
in Nevada, Oregon, and Utah. Ingot was produced by 10 operations in
Numerous firms consumed ingot to produce wrought
products and castings. In 2010, an estimated 75% of the titanium
metal was used in aerospace applications.
The remaining 25% was used in armor, chemical
processing, marine, medical, power generation, sporting goods, and
other non aerospace applications.
The value of sponge metal consumed was about $339
million, assuming an average selling price of $11.38 per kilogram.
always depended on overseas markets to source titanium sponge, which
is created during the first stage of processing titanium ore.
