Titanium metal is extraordinarily strong, yet ductile and light-weight. It is over 46% lighter that steel, while it shows similar tensile strength. Even though it is heavier that aluminium, it exhibits over twice its mechanical strength. One of the key characteristics of titanium and its alloys is a very high resistance to corrosion. It is guaranteed by very dense surface layer of oxides. When that layer is damaged (scratched or removed), the new one forms immediately.

Can metallurgy be considered a sustainable environmental technology? This is the question that bothers not only environmental activists, but anybody concerned with the mining industry having a considerable impact on the natural environment.
Ability to develop, create and apply a specific material marks the border between business success or failure. Forecasting mechanical properties of a new alloy is an important aspect for both scientists and engineers as it allows saving time and money.
What is corrosion? From the chemical point of view, it is a natural, electrochemical process between the surface and the environment, converting a refined metal into a more stable form of oxides, hydroxides or sulfides.
