Pure Titanium (TW340)

 

Titanium Round Wire

Our Pure Titanium (Tw340) is lightweight, has excellent corrosion resistance, is scratch-free and nickel free. Many other companies shave their wire down to smaller sizes, thus leaving quite a few scratches and pits. In order to remove these scratches, the wire is then subjected to an acid

 

treatment which leaves it dull and coated with acid flakes. These flakes will tend to damage the mold on the press over time which will add to the cost of your processing. In addition to that, with this dull finish, it is then necessary to polish the product, adding extra time and cost to your finished material.

 

Pure Titanium at Arkhe is different. This means that the finished product is scratch-free, and the surface consists of complete molecules. Arkhe titanium has a glossy finish, much like that of stainless steel until now couldn't be done with titanium. There is no acid residue to damage your press molds, and once pressed, or swaged can be finished without final polishing. This will decrease your production time and costs as well.

 

Many companies still rate their titanium using the "H-rating". This is actually a very wide range of quality. Many companies may find that the 1/2H they ordered from other companies is not satisfactory for their uses.. The manufacturers that produce the titanium for Arkhe are much more demanding. They measure the titanium using Newtons/sq mm, and anything falling outside the much stricter range, is not fit for sale. This translates into a product that has met much stricter demands and will therefore more than likely meet the customer's requirements more often than not.

 

We have split the standard JIS rating for Titanium into three ranges. This means that we can pss along to the consumer a product that more suits their needs, and is closer to the tension they require. Please contact us for more detailed information regarding this issue.
