> Titanium


In a perfect example of a mineral's true potential not being realised until long after its discovery, Titanium went from being discovered by a Cornish amateur geologist and parish priest, William Gregor, in 1791, to being the material of choice during the jet age of the 1950s. The principle characteristics engineers then, as well as now, appreciate are its high strength with comparably lower mass, its high-temperature operating properties, its resistance to corrosion and, for specific purposes, its bio-compatibility. This means that Titanium will find itself invaluable across the whole spectrum of the engineering industry. Titanium is typically organised into four distinct groups to reflect its varying alloyed states and is organised on this 'site thusly: Commercially Pure/Unalloyed, Alpha and Near-Alpha, Alpha-Beta and Beta.

Titanium Grades


Commercially Pure and Unalloyed Titanium Alloys are used in industries where their combined high corrosion resistance and good formability is a necessary requirement, but ultimate strength is not...


Beta Titanium Alloys, with their Body Centred Cubic (BCC) structure, are formed by the addition of sufficient Beta isomorpheous and eutectic stabilising elements Molybdenum, Vanadium, Iron, Niobium, Chromium and Hydrogen...

Alpha-Near-Alpha Titanium.png

Alpha and Near-Alpha Titanium Alloys are the traditional high temperature alloys. They have a near-single phase structure, giving them excellent creep characteristics, whilst offering the good strength of Alpha-Beta Alloys (up to 600MPa)...


The best of both worlds, Alpha-Beta Titanium Alloys are a dual phase alloy, featuring high compositions of Alpha friendly Aluminium, but with healthy measures of Beta Stabilisers Vanadium, Tantalum, Niobium and Hydrogen, too...

Titanium in Industry

Integ Metals supply metals and materials directly to industry. For this purpose, we have listed the eight most frequently supplied to industries on this page, with the purpose of offering our solutions to each industry. Thereafter, we have taken the liberty of introducing the industries, explained what their unique demands are, and then outlined the Pros, Cons and Uses for each of the most requested materials and their role within the selected industry.


The world of Aeronautics is the single most demanding field, for materials, within engineering. Extremes of temperature, exposure to the elements, not to mention bearing vast masses and G-forces, only the very best materials are used...


The Medical Industry presents some of the keenest challenges for engineering materials. In terms of absolute stress and strain on materials, the medical industry doesn't challenge the Aeronautical Industry, for example...


From golf clubs to tennis racquets, bicycles to kayaks, performance and health gains can be found in improving the materials used in leisure equipment. Whether it's weight saving, strength gaining, or ease of forming, winning or losing can be decided by material selection.


The world of Petro-Chemical engineering is unquestionably a most testing industry for engineering materials. Not only is there the severe corrosion threat from chemicals used in the refining of oil into petrol, there's also the fact that oil is often mined at sea...


The Marine Industry poses a raft of requirements for engineering materials. The first one that comes to mind is the issue of corrosion many materials face in salt water solutions, so a resistance to these events is a must...
