Titanium hardware is widely used in automobile, following are some main advantages:


1. Low density: titanium hardware not only can reduce the weight of the vehicle, for high-speed moving parts, but also can reduce the motion inertia.


2. High specific strength: Among various metal materials, the specific strength of titanium is almost the highest, and titanium parts can be used as a load-bearing part.


3. Small elastic modulus: only 50% of steel, and the fatigue strength is large, suitable for making springs.


4.  Good heat resistance: titanium hardware can work for a long time at 200~650 ° C, suitable for high temperature parts.


5. Small thermal expansion coefficient: titanium parts is 50% of stainless steel and aluminum, suitable for engine valves


6. Good corrosion resistance: titanium hardware and titanium parts are better than aluminum, magnesium and stainless steel,  they can resist the corrosion of atmosphere, rain, anti-freezing road moisture and high temperature waste gas containing hydrogen sulfide, suitable for the tail nozzle and other working environment is harsh parts;


7. Good frost resistance: in the environment of minus 100℃, it will not produce low temperature brittleness.


8. Good formability: titanium can be made in various shapes through stamping, hot forging, powder metallurgy, precision casting and other methods.


9. Good decoration: titanium hardware and titanium parts can make in vaious colors through anodizing and PVD coating.
