Titanium has been around since 1790 and gets it name from the Greek God “Titan”, who was the God of enormous strength. The process of extracting the metal from the ore was developed in 1910. Because of its properties, the metal was deemed suitable for the aerospace industry.
Titanium has been the metal of choice for aerospace applications since the 1940’s. This is because of the metal’s strength to weight ratio, corrosion resistance, and its ability to perform at high temperatures.
