Titanium is a silvery-white light metal that is often found, but is difficult to extract. In its pure form titanium is easy to form, malleable, thermally relatively stable and very good electrical conductor. Important characteristics are its mechanical strength and low thermal expansion. Titanium is relatively resistant to air at room temperature and its corrosion resistance is comparable to that of precious metals. High-purity titanium is used as a getter metal to remove the last gas residues in vacuum technology, as it reacts with small amounts of oxygen. Corrosion-resistant, pure titanium is used in the construction of chemical plants. Due to their high strength, low weight and excellent corrosion resistance, titanium alloys are excellent construction materials for shipbuilding and the aerospace industry. Titanium is also an important alloying element in special steels.
