Titanium resists corrosion, withstands high temperatures, and has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metallic element. Titanium flat bars have square or rectangular solid cross sections and come in different material grades. They are commonly used for heat exchangers, blades, and fasteners. Titanium sheets and plates are solid and flat with no surface texture. They are often used in chemical processing applications, manufactured into military and aerospace parts and components, and used for marine hardware. Solid titanium rods are stronger and lighter than steel rods and come in different material grades for specific applications.
