What is Titanium used for?

The Rhine, which flows through Switzerland, Germany, France and the Netherlands, is an important shipping channel in Europe, and tens of millions of tons of goods are transported between countries through the Rhine every year. The persistent drought and lack of rain in Europe this summer has led to a drop in the water level of the Rhine, which has seriously affected shipping and exacerbated the energy crisis in Europe.


Argentina's economy minister and director of the National Social Security Agency recently announced that pensions for most of the country's retirees will rise by 15.53% from September. In addition, starting from September, retirees will receive an additional grant for three consecutive months, ranging from 4000 Argentine pesos to 7000 Argentine pesos.

It is understood that the range of people who can enjoy the pension increase is limited to those whose monthly income does not exceed twice the minimum social average wage (43353 Argentine pesos), which is expected to cover 85 per cent of the country's retirees.

The minister of economy said the increase in pensions is to help people cope with rising prices brought about by inflation. Argentina's monthly inflation rate in July has not yet been announced, and several agencies expect it to reach about 8 per cent, while Argentina's annual inflation rate is likely to exceed 100 per cent by the end of the year.


Because of the turbulent international situation, the supply and prices of many international bulk titanium powder are still very uncertain.

General:
Can be used in pyrotechnic fuzes and combustible compositions, photographic / ignition pastes, glass-to-metal or ceramic-to-metal joining materials, gas turbine engines, intermetallic compounds, ship structures, components in pumps. Deep-sea submersibles, condensers, fuselage, water-jet propulsion systems, weapons, systems, flue gas desulfurization, steam turbines, fan blades, piping systems, compressor plates, heat exchangers, wing structures, containers, tanks, mixers, glasses frames, medical implants, nuclear waste storage, valves, springs, connecting rods, jewelry and sports equipment.
 

In aerospace industry:
Used in gas turbine engines for military and commercial aircraft (using titanium to reduce engine weight while maintaining strength), fuselage, and various applications for missiles and spacecraft. In most aircraft engines, titanium-based alloy parts account for 20-30% of the engine weight.
 
Titanium alloys are used in aircraft, armor, naval ships, spacecraft and missiles because of their high tensile strength-density ratio, high corrosion resistance and ability to withstand moderate high temperature without creep. For these applications, titanium alloyed with aluminum, vanadium and other elements is used in a variety of components, including key structural components, firewalls, landing gears, exhaust pipes (helicopters) and hydraulic systems. In fact, about 2/3 of titanium is produced for aircraft engines and frames.
 
SR-71 Blackbird was one of the first aircraft to make extensive use of titanium in its structure, paving the way for the use of modern military and commercial aircraft. It is estimated that the Boeing 777 used 59 metric tons (130000 pounds), the Boeing 747 used 45 tons, the Boeing 737 used 18 tons, the Airbus A340 used 32 tons, the Airbus A330 used 18 tons and the Airbus A320 used 12 tons. The Airbus A380 may use 146 metric tons, including about 26 tons of engines. In engine applications, titanium is used in rotors, compressor blades, hydraulic system components and engine rooms. Titanium 6AL-4V alloys account for nearly 50 per cent of all alloys used in aircraft applications.
 

Medical applications:
Titanium and its alloys are widely used to coat the surface of implantable medical devices to accelerate bone growth and healing.
 
Titanium and its alloys have become very popular materials because of their low density, high corrosion resistance and excellent mechanical properties (Randall and Animesh,1997 years; Liu et al., 2005). Today, titanium is also recognized for use in medical implants, exclusive sports equipment and jewelry. Titanium parts are still expensive, not only because of the high price of raw materials, but also because of the difficulty of forming, machining and welding. This is why the near-net forming of titanium is very favorable. As a near-net forming process for mass production of small and complex parts, Metal injection Molding (MIM) is an ideal alternative (Rack and Qazi,2005 years).
 
In the MIM process, the binder is a key component, providing the fluidity and formability needed for the powder to form, even if it is temporary (Scott Weil et al. 2006). The adhesive systems commonly used in injection molding are based on thermoplastic materials (Krauss et al. 2007; Witari et al. 2004). In this study, palm oil derivatives, palm stearic acid, have been formulated and evaluated as a possible alternative adhesive system. The reason for using palm stearate as an adhesive system is that its content may be beneficial in the degreasing process. It is important to gradually remove the adhesive to maintain the shape of the defatted part. At different heating temperatures, the adhesive melts, leaving different impurities at different melting points. The remaining impurities help to form pores to remove the remaining adhesive material. Therefore, the selection of palm stearate as a possible alternative binder system meets the important standard of binder system in PIM process because its components show different melting points.

As imports of natural gas from Russia gradually decrease, the price of natural gas in Germany rises. According to statistics from a German price information portal, according to the current natural gas price, the average annual natural gas cost of the average German household has soared 184%, from 1258 euros last year to 3568 euros, and is likely to continue to soar.

The German government plans to change energy security laws to shift rising costs to all consumers, including natural gas users who have signed fixed-price contracts, Reuters reported. The website estimates that after Germany begins imposing a surtax on households that use natural gas for heating in October, the average annual increase in gas spending per household will be between 357 euros and 1190 euros.


The Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee recently announced that it had formally submitted a bid to the Olympic Council of Asia to host the 2029 Asian Winter Games. Saudi Arabia plans to host the Asian Winter Games in the small town of "TROJENA", the Saudi Olympic Committee said in a statement. If Saudi Arabia succeeds in its bid, it will become the first West Asian and Arab country to host the Asian Winter Games.

The town of "TROJENA" is located within the scope of NEOM New Town in northwestern Saudi Arabia, about 50 kilometers away from the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea.
