As one of the preferred forging
suppliers for the United States, Philadelphia Forgings provides
high-quality titanium forgings that are useful in a number of applications.
A lighter alternative to steel, titanium forgings exhibit excellent
levels of corrosion resistance as well as exceptional high strength
to low weight ratios.
Philadelphia Forgings offers
forged products in the following
grades of titanium:
Properties of Titanium
Titanium is a silvery-white metal that forms
a protective oxide covering which makes it extremely resistant to
corrosion, even in the presence of seawater and chlorine. Also able
to withstand acid and chemical attack, titanium resists erosion
as well as other types of metal fatigue. Valued for its strength
to weight ratio, titanium forgings have the same ultimate tensile
strengths as low alloy steels but are significantly lighter and
Purposes for Titanium Forgings
Philadelphia Forgings supplies superior titanium
forgings that have found uses in a number of industries. Because
of its ability to resist corrosion by sea water and to maintain
high strength in elevated temperatures, titanium is used in propeller
shafts, heat exchangers in desalinization plants, temperature control
components for saltwater aquariums, military submarines, and more.
Because of its low density, forged titanium products are also valuable
in the aviation industry, where it is used for wing structures and
airframes. Titanium forgings are also being recognized as advantageous
for knives and other tools for backpacking applications. In both
aviation and camping, titanium forgings are employed for their light
Titanium is also a valuable alloying element
for other materials. Alloy steel
forgings, stainless steel
forgings, copper forgings,
and aluminum forgings all benefit
from the addition of titanium. Titanium can be used to refine the
grain size in both aluminum and alloy steel and it is used in some
stainless steel grades to decrease the amount of carbon present.
Copper that is alloyed with titanium increases in hardness.
Philadelphia Forgings is proud to supply superior
titanium forgings as well as forged products in a number of other
materials. Please go to the General
