With the development of economy, the demand for titanium and titanium alloy wires is increasing. At present, the supply of titanium wire is in short supply, and the development potential is huge. Pure titanium is a silver-white metal with many excellent properties. Titanium has a density of 4.54g/cm3, which is 43% lighter than steel and slightly heavier than the prestigious light metal magnesium. The mechanical strength is similar to that of steel, two times greater than that of aluminum and five times greater than that of magnesium. Titanium is resistant to high temperature and has a melting point of 1942K, which is nearly 1000K higher than gold and nearly 500K higher than steel. In recent years, with the continuous research and development of titanium materials, there are more and more titanium products on the market today. Titanium wire is one of the common titanium products in our life.
Titanium wire perfectly inherits the advantages of titanium and titanium alloys, and has a series of excellent characteristics such as good corrosion resistance, high specific strength, non-magnetic, high biocompatibility, low ultrasonic impedance, and good shape memory function. Therefore, titanium and titanium alloy wires are widely used in many fields.
1. At present, more than 80% of titanium and titanium alloy wires are used as welding wires, such as welding of various titanium equipment, welded pipes, repair welding of turbine disks and blades of aircraft jet engines, and welding of casings. 2. Titanium wire has been widely used in chemical, pharmaceutical, papermaking and other industries because of its excellent corrosion resistance. It can be made into filter screen for sea water filter, pure water filter, chemical filter.
2. Titanium and titanium alloy wires are also used to manufacture fasteners, load-bearing components, springs, etc. due to their good comprehensive properties. 4. In the medical and health industry, due to its excellent biocompatibility, titanium and titanium alloy wires are used to manufacture medical devices, such as implanted dental crowns, skull fixation, etc. 5. Some titanium alloy wires with shape memory function, such as titanium-nickel alloy wires, are used to make satellite antennas, shoulder pads for clothes, women's bras, spectacle frames, etc. 6. In the electroplating and water treatment industries, titanium and titanium alloy wires are used to manufacture various electrodes.
According to the different properties of titanium and titanium alloys, different types of titanium wires can be produced. Generally, titanium wire can be divided into the following categories: pure titanium wire, titanium alloy wire, pure titanium glasses wire, titanium straight wire, titanium welding wire, titanium hanging wire, titanium coil wire, titanium bright wire, medical titanium wire, titanium-nickel alloy wire. And different types of titanium wire have different uses. For example, pure titanium spectacle wire is mainly used to make spectacle frames, titanium hanging wire is used for suspending weights, and titanium-nickel alloy wire is often used as memory alloy material.
