Titanium is a strong, lustrous, silvery-white metal that can be alloyed with other elements, such as iron and aluminum, to create strong but lightweight alloys for use in the aerospace, automotive, agricultural, medical, and sporting goods industries. Its most important properties are its resistance to corrosion and extremely high strength-to-weight ration, the highest of any metal. This book provides all the important bedrock information about titanium s properties, while also telling the story of its discovery and describing the wide variety of uses to which it is put, from jet engines and spacecraft to desalination plants, paper mills, prosthetic limbs, tennis rackets, and golf clubs.
