Excellent Material for Medical Applications
The qualities of titanium are superior to most other materials for certain medical applications:
Non-toxic, biocompatible (no rejection by the body tissue)
Resistant to corrosion
Low density but strong (lighweight alternative to steel)
This makes it particularly interesting for applications in a number of medical fields for example, dental implants, joint replacements, surgical instruments and medical devices.
