What is Titanium used for?
A recent poll in Britain found that public support for sanctions against Russia is falling as fuel and prices rise.
The proportion of people willing to accept higher fuel prices as a result of western sanctions against Russia fell 14 percentage points to 36% from 50% in March, according to a survey conducted for the Telegraph by consultancy Redfield & Wilton Strategies.
Global energy and fuel prices have soared since the start of the year and remain high because of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine and uncertainty over Russian supplies.
The survey also found that 54% of people believe their own financial situation has worsened in the past year, up 12 percentage points from 42% two months ago. Sixty-two percent think things will get worse in the year ahead. Less than a third of respondents said they had received a pay rise to keep up with inflation, with two-thirds of those saying it was not enough to keep up with rising living costs.
The figures suggest that public concern about the conflict with Ukraine is now likely to be overtaken by financial worries.
Separately, the UK's consumer price index rose 7 percent this month from a year earlier, the highest since March 1992, according to figures released recently by the Office for National Statistics. In addition, a separate report released a few days ago by the Centre for Economics and Business Research said that real household disposable income in the UK will fall by 3% in 2022, equivalent to a loss of £2,320 per household, which would lead to the biggest drop in living standards since the 1950s. That is mainly because wages aren't keeping up with rising energy and fuel costs.
The prices of other commodities like the titanium powder are also expected to be influenced.
Can be used in pyrotechnic fuzes and combustible compositions, photographic / ignition pastes, glass-to-metal or ceramic-to-metal joining materials, gas turbine engines, intermetallic compounds, ship structures, components in pumps. Deep-sea submersibles, condensers, fuselage, water-jet propulsion systems, weapons, systems, flue gas desulfurization, steam turbines, fan blades, piping systems, compressor plates, heat exchangers, wing structures, containers, tanks, mixers, glasses frames, medical implants, nuclear waste storage, valves, springs, connecting rods, jewelry and sports equipment.
In aerospace industry:
Used in gas turbine engines for military and commercial aircraft (using titanium to reduce engine weight while maintaining strength), fuselage, and various applications for missiles and spacecraft. In most aircraft engines, titanium-based alloy parts account for 20-30% of the engine weight.
Titanium alloys are used in aircraft, armor, naval ships, spacecraft and missiles because of their high tensile strength-density ratio, high corrosion resistance and ability to withstand moderate high temperature without creep. For these applications, titanium alloyed with aluminum, vanadium and other elements is used in a variety of components, including key structural components, firewalls, landing gears, exhaust pipes (helicopters) and hydraulic systems. In fact, about 2/3 of titanium is produced for aircraft engines and frames.
SR-71 Blackbird was one of the first aircraft to make extensive use of titanium in its structure, paving the way for the use of modern military and commercial aircraft. It is estimated that the Boeing 777 used 59 metric tons (130000 pounds), the Boeing 747 used 45 tons, the Boeing 737 used 18 tons, the Airbus A340 used 32 tons, the Airbus A330 used 18 tons and the Airbus A320 used 12 tons. The Airbus A380 may use 146 metric tons, including about 26 tons of engines. In engine applications, titanium is used in rotors, compressor blades, hydraulic system components and engine rooms. Titanium 6AL-4V alloys account for nearly 50 per cent of all alloys used in aircraft applications.
Titanium and its alloys are widely used to coat the surface of implantable medical devices to accelerate bone growth and healing.
Titanium and its alloys have become very popular materials because of their low density, high corrosion resistance and excellent mechanical properties (Randall and Animesh,1997 years; Liu et al., 2005). Today, titanium is also recognized for use in medical implants, exclusive sports equipment and jewelry. Titanium parts are still expensive, not only because of the high price of raw materials, but also because of the difficulty of forming, machining and welding. This is why the near-net forming of titanium is very favorable. As a near-net forming process for mass production of small and complex parts, Metal injection Molding (MIM) is an ideal alternative (Rack and Qazi,2005 years).
In the MIM process, the binder is a key component, providing the fluidity and formability needed for the powder to form, even if it is temporary (Scott Weil et al. 2006). The adhesive systems commonly used in injection molding are based on thermoplastic materials (Krauss et al. 2007; Witari et al. 2004). In this study, palm oil derivatives, palm stearic acid, have been formulated and evaluated as a possible alternative adhesive system. The reason for using palm stearate as an adhesive system is that its content may be beneficial in the degreasing process. It is important to gradually remove the adhesive to maintain the shape of the defatted part. At different heating temperatures, the adhesive melts, leaving different impurities at different melting points. The remaining impurities help to form pores to remove the remaining adhesive material. Therefore, the selection of palm stearate as a possible alternative binder system meets the important standard of binder system in PIM process because its components show different melting points.
The price is influenced by many factors including the supply and demand in the market, industry trends, economic activity, market sentiment, and unexpected events.

India's imports of Russian crude oil fell in July for the first time since March, while Saudi Arabian crude oil imports rebounded for the first time in five months, Reuters reported.
India, the world's third-largest oil importer and consumer, imported 3.2 per cent less oil in July than in June to 4.63 million barrels a day, according to data. Of this total, Russian crude oil imports were about 877400 barrels per day, down about 7.3 per cent from the previous month, while Saudi crude oil imports were about 824700 barrels per day, up 25.6 per cent from the previous month. The move comes after Saudi Arabia lowered its official sales price in June and July. Middle East oil's share of India's overall imports fell slightly in July as India's purchases from Iraq fell 9.3 per cent below the 1 million b / d mark for the first time in 10 months compared with June.
However, Russia remains India's second-largest oil supplier, with Iraq in first place and Saudi Arabia in third place.
