At Ferralloy, we can provide you with a diverse range of products manufactured from refractory metals and titanium. While titanium has many characteristics of refractory metals, it is not technically classified that way. Let’s take a closer look at the qualities and applications of refractory metals and learn more.
As a group, they provide a number of unique characteristics such as resistance to high heat, corrosion and wear, making them useful in a multitude of applications. They have one characteristic in common, an exceptionally high melting point. Tungsten for example, melts at 6,170°F or 3,410°C which is more than double that of iron and steel. As a group, they are found in one section of the periodic table of elements. Although there are twelve refractory metals, only five are widely used. Tungsten, Molybdenum, Niobium, Tantalum and Rhenium.
Titanium is a chemical element found in nature as an oxide. Titanium can be alloyed with iron, aluminum, vanadium, and molybdenum, among other elements, to produce strong, lightweight alloys for aerospace, military, and industrial products as well as medical prostheses, orthopedic implants, and many other applications. The two most valuable properties of the metal are corrosion resistance and strength-to-density ratio, the highest of any metallic element.
