Our products and solutions

TIMET invests in research and development that advances the titanium industry. Over the last 60 years, we have developed dozens of new titanium alloys, new manufacturing processes and new technologies in order to solve challenges and provide cost savings, while maintaining the required quality standards that we have become known for within the titanium industry.
The use of titanium in medical applications started in the 1950’s and has been widely used ever since due to its biocompatibility with the human body and many other advantages. Titanium’s use in hip and knee prostheses are well known, but titanium and titanium alloys may allow for the future development of other applications.
Advantages of titanium or titanium alloys for Bio/Medical applications:
• Bio compatibility
• Higher strength than bone [80-120 MPa], stainless steels and other implant materials
• High fatigue strength [50% higher than cast Cobalt-Chromium allow]
• High resistance to impact loading
• Good corrosion resistance
• Adequate resistance to fretting
• Lower elastic modulus than steel or cobalt alloys
• Low density
