Refractory Metals › High Wear Applications
Recent developments in the primary processing of titanium promise to reduce material cost and broaden the application of titanium alloys to component parts for energy-efficient, low-emissions automobiles, trucks, and power generation systems. By enhancing the resistance of titanium alloys to surface damage at elevated temperatures, these lightweight aerospace alloys can now be more widely utilized in the power generation, industrial, defense, and transportation sectors. Infrared surface processing of titanium with wear-resistant composite materials has shown improved resistance to galling wear and decreased friction.
