  Titanium Screws  

There are few things in life that are more frustrating than a rusted screw that should only take a minute to replace.  The simple fact is, this is a problem that could have been easily avoided by simply choosing a more suitable material. While this problem is most often caused by steel and stainless steel parts, it is a problem that need not have occurred. Titanium would have solved the issue before it even became one.

Titanium screws are corrosion free in the natural environment, making them ideal in many chemical applications, such as an industrial dishwasher, for example. With its amazing resistance to corrosion in many harsh environments, especially including saltwater, titanium is the obvious choice for any serious boater. A titanium screw placed under such hard conditions will remain intact when all of the surrounding less noble metal parts have rusted and degraded.

Titanium screws have also been used in the medical field for some time. Titanium's biocompatibility with the human body is unsurpassed by any other metal. Osseointegration is a unique phenomenon where bone actually bonds to the titanium implant. This firmly anchors the titanium implant into place. At the time of this writing, titanium is the only metal we know of that allows for this integration in the human body. Implanted titanium screws also exhibit excellent compatibility with MRI and CT scanning. Scatter is minimal, and because titanium is non-ferrous, localized heating during MR is negligible.

Another prime application for titanium screws is in the automotive industry, especially in the racing sector. Titanium weighs roughly half as much as stainless steel. Reduced weight not only means a faster racecar, it also means the average family car would benefit from increased fuel economy.
