Titanium and titanium alloys are often used in the aerospace industry because of their high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent corrosion resistance. Aerospace is the largest consumer of titanium in a broad range of forms, sizes, and grades, which it uses for applications such as:
In recent years, the growth of the commercial aerospace industry, along with the use of composite materials, has fueled an increase in demand for titanium as larger, more fuel-efficient planes are designed and produced. Titanium is particularly useful in fastener applications because of its excellent mechanical properties and thermal expansion characteristics.
