Titanium Bolts in Military and Commercial Aviation

Wonder what makes titanium bolts right for the job? Titanium has the highest strength-to-density ratio of any metallic element. Grade 5 titanium is four times stronger than steel and almost 50 percent lighter. Add to its specific strength its corrosion resistance, and it’s no wonder that titanium is commonly used for many demanding aerospace applications.

Benefits of Titanium Bolts in Aerospace

  1. High temperature performance
  2. High strength-to-density ratio
  3. Corrosion resistance
  4. Non-magnetic
  5. Not a good conductor of electricity or heat

Titanium Bolts are used for…

High strength, close tolerance titanium bolts are used in many areas of an aircraft where performance under extreme temperatures and pressure is a must.

  1. Landing gear
  2. Jet engine – housing, pumps, screens, and fan blades of jet engine
  3. Engine – casings, blades, shafts and discs in engine
  4. Exterior air frames
  5. Wings and propellers – internal components
