1 By Basil Sunier

2  Titanium was discovered in 1791 by the English clergyman William Gregor  Four years later, German chemist Martin Heinrich Klaproth returned and isolated the new element  He suggested the name of titanium for the element in honor of the Titans, mythical giants who ruled the Earth until they were overthrown by the Greek gods

3  Titanium's relative density is about half that of copper and about 60% that of iron  For its weight, titanium is about six times stronger than aluminum and about twice as strong as iron  Titanium has a much better heat resistance than aluminum  Titanium is safe because it is biocompatible and does not harm the human body  Titanium is 100% recyclable and is very friendly to the environment

4  Titanium is the ninth-most abundant element in the Earth's crust  It exists mostly in Australia, Canada, China, New Zealand, Norway, India, Ukraine, North America and South Africa  Total known reserves of titanium are estimated to exceed 600 million tons

5  Titanium is used in steel as an alloying element to reduce grain size and as a deoxidizer  Titanium is often alloyed with aluminium vanadium, copper iron, manganese, molybdenum, and with other metals for various reasons, such as reducing grain size and to harden  Titanium mill products can be found in industrial, aerospace, and recreational fields
