The high melting point, hardness and corrosion resistance of iridium and its alloys determine most of its applications. Iridium and especially iridium–platinum alloys or osmium–iridium alloys have low wear and are used, for example, for multi-ported spinnerets, through which a plastic polymer melt is extruded to form fibers, such as rayon. Osmium–iridium is used for […]
8 Excellent Properties Make Titanium A New Marine Metal Marine engineering materials are required to have unique properties, such as high strength, resistance to seawater hydrothermal corrosion, resistance to sulfidation corrosion, antimicrobial adhesion, and high toughness. Titanium is light in weight, high in strength and resistant to corrosion. Particularly, it is immune to the erosion […]
How to Choose a Pair of Titanium Glasses? Titanium is widely used in the eyewear industry because of its excellent properties, including the resistance to deformation and discoloration, as well as strong stability, etc. Spectacle frames made of titanium can be divided into three types: pure titanium, titanium alloy, and beta-titanium frames. The following is […]
How is Titanium Used in Automotive Lightweight? Lightweighting is a concept in the auto industry about building cars and trucks that are less heavy as a way to achieve better fuel efficiency and handling. The main guiding ideology of automobile weight reduction is to ensure the steady improvement of performance and to design various assembly […]
