Titanium Used In Medicine

titanium in back surgeryTC Titanium produces Titanium that can be used in many industries because of its exceptional properties. Titanium is known to be used in the auto, aerospace, oil & gas, tactical, sporting and construction industries. It is also useful in the field of medicine.  In fact, Titanium is one of the most critical metals in the medical industry. The most common reasons why Titanium is the metal of choice for the medical industry include:

  1. It does not rust: Unlike other metals like steel and aluminum, Titanium is corrosive resistant. The anti-rust characteristic comes from the fact that it does not react with oxygen which is the common cause of metal corrosion.
  2. It is safe for the human body. Titanium is the only metal that the human body adapts to internally which allows human tissue to attach itself to Titanium. Because of this, it can be used in treating bones that are broken. Surgeons use It frequently in items like rods, pins, and plates.

Type of Titanium used in Medicine

The most common forms of Titanium used in the field of medicine are Titanium 6AL4V and Titanium 6AL4V ELI. ELI, which stands for Extra Low Interstitials which control Iron and Oxygen to improve ductility and fracture strength. They are made by adding 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium together.
