Titanium is a solid. It can been found as a metal on the periodic table.
William Gregor discovered titanium in 1791. Titanium is used for alloys with aluminum, manganese, iron, and other metals. These alloys of titanium are used principally in the aerospace industry, for both airframes and engines, where lightweight strength ability to withstand extremes of temperature are important.
Titanium is a lustrous transition metal with a silver color, low density, and high strength. It is highly resistant to corrosion in sea water and chlorine. Titanium readily reacts with oxygen at 2,190 F in air, and at 1,130 F in pure oxygen, forming titanium dioxide. It is one of the few elements that burns in pure nitrogen gas, reacting at 1,470 F to form titanium nitride.
