Titanium is a metalic element. It is light, strong and corrosion resistant. It has very good corrosion resistance to seawater and chlorine. Titanium can be alloyed with other elements such as iron, aluminium, vanadium, molybdenum and others, to produce strong lightweight alloys.

The main two types of titanium offered by Hobby and Engineering Supplies Online are Grade 5 Alloy containing approximately 6% aluminium and 4% vanadium, and commercially pure Grade 1 which contains very few impurities. There are many grades of titanium but we will only deal here with the two main grades that we offer.

Grade 1 Commercial Pure Titanium

Commercially pure titanium is approx 40% lighter than steel but still has a high strength. It is an excellent choice for applications requiring good corrosion resistance.

The main component is Ti (Titanium) with the additional elements shown in the following chart
