Abstract

BRITISH TITANIUM. THE British plant for titanium, to be operated by the Metals Division of I.C.I., will come into production in 1958 with an anticipated output of 1,500 tons p.a. Speaking on the production and properties of titanium and its alloys at a meeting of the London sections of the Institute of Metals and the Society of Chemical Industry, Dr. N. P. Inglis said that the use of titanium is at present almost entirely confined to the aircraft industry for such things as compressor blades, compressor discs, aircraft bulkheads, etc. Future possibilities include its use in landing gear and nuts and bolts. In the chemical industry, titanium is in competition with stainless steel and, so far, price difference and availability have precluded its use to any extent.
