Titanium is lightweight, strong, corrosion resistant and abundant in nature. Titanium and its alloys possess tensile strengths from 30,000 psi to 200,000 psi (210-1380 MPa), which are equivalent to those strengths found in most of alloy steels. The density of titanium is only 56 percent that of steel, and its corrosion resistance compares well with that of platinum. Of all the elements in the earth’s crust, titanium is the ninth most plentiful. Titanium has a high melting point of 3135°F (1725°C). This melting point is approximately 400°F (220°C) above the melting point of steel and approximately 2000°F (1100°C) above that of aluminum.

- Corrosion resistant
- Abundant in nature
Titanium has the following advantages:
- Good strength
- Resistance to erosion and erosion-corrosion
- Very thin, conductive oxide surface film
- Hard, smooth surface that limits adhesion of foreign materials
- Surface promotes drop wise condensation
