TW Metals stocks a focused inventory of titanium tubing for the aerospace industry, for both the commercial and military markets. Titanium tubes are the ninth most abundant element in the earth’s crust and the seventh most abundant metal. Its low density, slightly over half that of steel, and its high strength combination is the reason for the metals growing preference in both military and commercial aircraft. The alloying of titanium tubing with elements such as aluminum and vanadium increase the strength of titanium while at the same time retains its weight advantage over steel.
Even though our inventories are tailored to the aerospace industry, titanium is used in many other industries/markets.
Titanium Tubing for Industrial Applications:
- Marine Industry
- Chemical and petrochemical industry
- Pulp and paper industry
- Sporting goods - golf shafts, bicycle frames, etc.
- Medical industry
- Nuclear industry
Titanium is classified in two categories, commercially pure and alloys with additives such as aluminum and vanadium. Our inventories consist of both types and cover both seamless and welded methods of manufacture.
