Titanium and Architecture


1. Meet the requirement of Lightweight building materials

   The density of titanium is small, about 60% of steel, 50% of copper and 1.7 times of aluminum, but has almost the same strength as ordinary steel. As a building material, it can reduce weight by 70% -75% The center of gravity down, improve the overall seismic capacity of buildings.


2.Good corrosion resistance

Titanium has good corrosion resistance: it can withstand urban pollution, industrial radiation and extreme erosion. Therefore, it is suitable for use in a marine climatic environment.


3.Low thermal expansion coefficient

Compared with other metal building materials, the coefficient of thermal expansion of titanium is small, about 50% of stainless steel, 30% of aluminum, and glass, brick, cement and stone close to suitable for their sharing, and can be designed to highlight the titanium Features with glass. Titanium thermal stress is very low, is stainless steel 1/2, 1/3 of aluminum. Titanium can be used as a whole material, do not need seams to compensate for thermal expansion and contraction.

4. No environmental pollution

With the development of society, people are more and more demanding on environmental protection, and their desire to return to nature is getting stronger. Due to the good corrosion resistance of titanium, they can be recycled 100% without polluting the environment and meet the requirements of environmental protection.


5. long lasting

Titanium used as building materials, decorative materials, can resist corrosion for a century without maintenance and repair. From this perspective it is clearly better than other metals. This advantage is particularly pronounced in highly corrosive environments such as coastal cities and industrial areas. Taking into account the long life cycle of titanium, its long-term cost performance over all stainless steel, titanium building materials do not need to maintain the material, titanium building also no maintenance measures.

6. Processing, welding performance is good

Titanium is easy to process into thin plates, good welding performance. Titanium itself has a shiny silver-white luster, through the treatment, can get a more shiny surface. In order to achieve a more beautiful decorative effect, by etching, anodized to obtain different patterns and colors, and if necessary, the roof made of various shapes, plus the color of the color will make the entire building into a Perfect artwork
