We are a world-class supplier of engineering raw materials. Our objective is to provide all our customers, from the small machine shop to the large multi-national corporation, a supply path that continuously delivers the highest levels of service, quality and value.
We are a stockist of high-quality titanium flat bar products in a range of incremental sizes to suit your specific engineering requirements.
There is little fundamental difference between titanium flat and plate products apart from the size. In essence, titanium flats usually are less than 8 inches wide, but the chemical and mechanical characteristics are mostly the same. Titanium is 45% lighter than steel and yet retains its strength. Additional alloying elements such as aluminium and vanadium introduced during the alloying process improves the mechanical properties of the titanium alloy. We also supply commercially pure titanium which is the unalloyed version.
We process your titanium flat bar to specific cut lengths thanks to our in-house processing teams. Typical applications for titanium flat bar products include motorsport, aerospace and automotive. However, the alloy lends itself well to a broad range of general engineering applications where high strength low weight ratios are required. Titanium is more expensive than aluminium as the alloy is more expensive to produce, so the choice for the customer will ultimately come down to cost versus performance.
Titanium is around two-thirds heavier than aluminium alloys but is a much stronger material, so less material is required. In truth, the necessary amount of titanium in comparison is considerably less. Therefore, both aluminium and titanium have their place depending on the particular application in mind.
We stock Titanium Flats in a variety of grades.
Our knowledgeable staff and resident metallurgists will be pleased to assist you further on any technical topic. Smiths Metal Centres Limited also boasts an in-house UKAS Accredited Testing Laboratory which is unique within the multi-metal and plastic stockholding sector. We believe this underlines our total commitment to quality and our ethos of being the complete service provider.
We offer in-house processing options - for more information, please refer to our processing services.
