Titanium is a light, strong metal with a natural resistance to marine and chlorine corrosion. It has the highest strength to weight ratio of any metal and even in its unalloyed form it is as strong as some steels but around 45% lighter.

Commercially pure (CP) titanium is a term used to describe unalloyed titanium for industrial use. Minor impurities such as carbon, iron and oxygen still exist in these materials but their levels can be controlled to produce a range of product attributes.

Titanium alloys contain additional quantities of other elements such as vanadium and aluminium to further enhance mechanical properties and corrosion resistance.
