According to Boeing, the 737 Dreamliner is made of 15 percent titanium. Much of that is in the form of titanium aerospace fasteners. So what makes titanium 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. Titanium is 200 percent stronger than aluminum but only 60 percent heavier.
Add to its strength-to-weight ratio its unique corrosion resistance, and it’s no wonder that titanium is commonly used for numerous demanding aerospace applications.
Characteristics of Titanium Aerospace Bolts
