Titanium Plate material

Titanium Plate material differs from application to application. There are different mixtures of titanium and alloy elements to produce different titanium material composition. Titanium could also be used in pure form. The commercially pure titanium contains over 99% titanium and other elements in trace amounts. The use of titanium ranges over a variety of applications. Titanium is naturally strong and corrosion resistant metal. It is used primarily for these qualities. To increase the corrosion resistance and the strength, the alloying materials such as vanadium, molybdenum, nickel and chromium could be used. The titanium plate is one of the often used shapes of the titanium products. It is used in applications where the strength, corrosion resistance and the aesthetic appeal are required.

The usage of these plates are seen in transportation, tankers, storage containers, architecture, aerospace industries, chemical industries, sea water applications and food processing plants alike. There are about 38 grades of titanium. The grading is based on the alloyed composition of the titanium material. The metal plates are produced in sheets for the manufacturing ease. The titanium sheet is therefore produced in larger sizes and then transported or stocked. The plates could then be cut to sizes from larger sheets and sold for applications. Different applications require different sizes of the plates. The most used grade of titanium is the grade 5. It is an alloy of aluminium and vanadium with titanium. Due to the common use as availability, the titanium grade 5 sheet prices are very much affordable.
