silver titanium is a precious metal that can be used to make jewelry. It is durable and hypoallergenic. It is also flexible, so it can withstand many things without breaking. However, there are some things you should know about this metal to avoid making any mistakes.
Titanium was first discovered in 1791 by Reverend William Gregor while mining ilmenite in Cornwall, England. It wasn’t commercially produced until 1940 due to difficulties in extracting it from the earth and processing it.
It has a density that is less than gold, but more than copper. It can be formed into an alloy by powder metallurgy, 3D printing, co-cladding, and melting and casting under argon. Its surface can be polished to produce a bright, durable finish that is resistant to scratching. It can be annealed or hardened to create spring-like properties and resist oxidation, but not as well as pure silver.
Because of its lower density, titanium is less brittle than sterling silver. It also has a less effective resistance to impact damage than silver. Because of this, it is important to protect sterling pieces from physical impacts with other metals and harder objects in a jewelry box. It is also best to use a soft pouch or ziplock bag for your sterling silver. Detailed carving before casting is not recommended as the titanium will form an oxide layer during the burnout process. It is also recommended to use sprues that are larger than normal to avoid voids during the casting process.
