Titanium plates have low density and high tensile strength. Within the range of -235 ℃ to 600 ℃, their specific strength is almost the highest among metal materials. They could form a thin but hard oxide film in proper oxidation environment and thus they have excellent corrosion resistance.
Besides, titanium plates are non magnetic and have low coefficient of linear expansion, making titanium plates and titanium alloy plates become important materials for astronautical structure. Then they are widely applied in areas of ship manufacturing and chemical engineering, and achieve rapid development, especially in areas of chemical engineering and petroleum.
With rapid development of technology, titanium plates and titanium alloy plates are widely applied to mechanical equipment, fertilizers, fibers, paper pulps, electrochemistry, sound films, sea water desalination, coking, sports, medical treatment, vehicles, storage tanks, pressure containers, heat-exchange equipment, electrolytic vessels and equipment and pump valves. They also replace other metal metals and quickly enter into production application, even our bodies.
