Titanium

Titanium alloys are metals that contain a mixture of Titanium along with other chemical elements. These such alloys have very high tensile strength and toughness even at extreme temperatures.

Titanium is light weight, has extraordinary corrosion resistance and the ability to withstand extreme temperatures. However, the high cost of both raw materials and processing limit their use to military applications, aircraft & spacecraft, medical devices, highly stressed components such as connecting rods and on expensive sports cars, premium sports equipment and consumer electronics.
