The metal is as tough as steel and twice as strong as aluminum. Yet, it is 45% lighter than steel. Neither those the metal easily corrode when in sea water. No wonder, it is used in propeller shafts, rigging and other parts of boats that are exposed to sea water.

Titanium is widely used as a pigment in paint, in paper, and in plastics. With the metals duality, it is no surprise that most aircraft parts are made from it. It is also used in military applications, aircraft, spacecraft, medical devices, connecting rods on expensive sports cars and some premium. These are used in these industries specifically because her low weight and resistance to high temperatures are important.

Humans, with loss of limbs, also use titanium. As the metal does not react within the human body, it is also used for pins of setting bones and for other biological implants.
