- Titanium is magnetically invisible.
- Grade 2 Ti has 25% more yield strength than 6061-T6 aluminum.
- The Young’s modulus of grade 2 Ti is approximately ½ that of stainless steel. This means better vibration dampening.
- The thermal conductivity of Ti is 40% better than stainless.
- Ti has at least 7 orders of magnitude less Hydrogen than stainless steel.
- Low-z number is advantageous for installation and maintenance under high-radiation levels, compared to stainless steel.
- High corrosion resistance since the surface oxide layer is chemically stable. Titanium’s corrosion resistance and lack of reactivity makes it the most biocompatible metal.
