Get the Best Titanium Plate Price with Remnant Titanium

Titanium Plate

The unique properties of titanium—high strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion and heat resistance, and biocompatibility—make it ideal for manufacturing many of the components and products used in the aerospace, automotive, marine, medical, and recreational equipment industries.  

Although titanium ore is abundant on the earth’s surface, the highly reactive nature of titanium with hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen in the atmosphere requires labor-intensive, complex, and costly mining and processing procedures that drive up the price of titanium. Compared to other metals such as aluminum and steel, you pay a premium for titanium and its alloys.

An Alternative to High Titanium Plate Prices  

However, there’s an alternative to high titanium plate prices. Many of the machine shops, welders, and fabricators in the San Francisco Bay Area are finding they can meet their titanium sourcing requirements with verified titanium plate remnants. These remnants are available at prices significantly lower than new titanium plate sourced directly from the mill. 

Because new titanium plate is used in sufficiently large quantities by aerospace, automotive, marine, medical, and recreational equipment manufacturers in the Bay Area, there’s a significant volume of usable titanium left over after the manufacturing process. This titanium plate scrap is purchased by local metal recyclers who specialize in this type of recycling—selling usable titanium plate remnants at highly competitive prices.

  • Commercially Pure (CP) titanium grades 1, 2, 3, and 4—known for high ductility and exceptional corrosion resistance. 
  • Titanium 6-4 Grade 5 (Ti 6Al-4V) is the most common titanium alloy grade. It is alloyed with 6% aluminum and 4% vanadium. Ti 6-4 can be heat treated to increase its strength. It tolerates high temperatures (up to 600°F) and offers good ductility.
  • Titanium 10-2-3 (Ti-10V-2FE-3AL) is alloyed with 10% vanadium, 2% iron, and 3% aluminum. Ti 10-2-3 offers a combination of excellent high-strength toughness, hot-die forgeability, and deep hardenability.

Added Advantages of Purchasing Remnant Titanium Plate

In addition to the cost efficiency of purchasing verified titanium remnants, these remnants also offer added advantages for machine shops, welders, and fabricators. There’s less machining waste when titanium plate remnants closely match the dimensions of the component being machined or fabricated. Compared to full-size titanium plates, an inventory of remnants can occupy less floor space and are easier to handle. If you’re not regularly using titanium in your production process, the remnant titanium plate can be the least expensive way to source and stock titanium.
