Titanium Sheet Metal Screws Information
  Titanium Sheet Metal Screws  

Although they were originally invented for joining sheet metals together, sheet metal screws are widely used now for many tasks. Many boat owners use them for fastening parts to fiberglass or wood. Builders use them for securing siding to homes and electricians use them for running wire and cables.

Titanium is the perfect metal for sheet metal screws. Like silver and gold, titanium is an element near the top of the galvanic scale. Its resistance to galvanic and crevice corrosion is incredible, reducing the cost of corrosion-related maintenance and replacement to zero. Also, its strength-to-weight ratio is unmatched by most other common metals. With an item as small as a sheet metal screw, that might not seem like a big deal, but if thousands of steel screws were replaced by titanium ones, say on a boat, the weight savings would be huge!

Commercially pure (Grade 2) titanium has a yield strength about fifteen percent higher than 316 stainless steel. Grade 5 Titanium (Ti‐6Al‐4V) has a yield strength over three and a half times greater than stainless steel while weighing only 56% as much! With such an incredible strength, many products can be re-engineered from titanium and actually use less metal than stainless steel, decreasing the material weight even more!

With its almost unlimited number of uses, titanium sheet metal screws are a huge step in the future of building materials. Boats, houses, and cars that use titanium screws will never have the problem of their fasteners rusting or corroding away. Combined with the weight reduction it provides, titanium is the prime choice for the safety and cost conscious consumer.
