titanium1Titanium is a hard, silver colored metal that is low in density, and high in overall strength. It is known to be highly resistant to corrosion from seawater, chlorine, and other similar things. Titanium, similar to other metals, can be alloyed together in order to create stronger materials used in different kinds of construction. Titanium is commonly alloyed with iron, aluminium, vanadium, and molybdenum, which results in a stronger alloy that is used in jet engines, space crafts, dental implants, mobile phones and jewelry. For jewelry, Titanium is popular due to its high durability (most common are Titanium rings). In most cases, Titanium alloyed with gold, which creates an alloy that is marketed as 24-karat gold, with a hardness closer to 14-karat gold, but more durable than 24-karat gold. Titanium can also be used for watch casings, as they are highly resistant to corrosion, and its durability prevents easy breaking.
