Chemical Etching with Titanium

E-Fab specializes in the photochemical etching of titanium, delivering critical parts for industries such as aerospace, medical, defense, and renewable energy.

Titanium earns its reputation as a substantial metal due to its exceptional blend of properties. It boasts a remarkable strength-to-weight ratio, making it indispensable for aerospace and defense components. Its lightness enhances fuel efficiency and maneuverability, while its strength supports higher payload capacity.

We welcome your questions about how to use Titanium for your parts. 

Types of Titanium used at E-Fab

Titanium is known for its impermeable properties, making it one of E-Fab’s most sought-after metals. When exposed to air or oxygen, titanium develops a protective layer of titanium dioxide on its surface, increasing its corrosion resistance. We etch all grades of titanium including CP Grade 1, CP Grade 2, CP Grade 3, CP Grade 4, CP Grade 5 and Grade 6A-3.

Why Choose

Strength-to-weight ratio
Resistance to wear and corrosion
Titanium’s non-toxic nature and compatibility with the human body make it an ideal material for medical use. It doesn’t provoke adverse reactions when in contact with bodily fluids, reducing the risk of rejection. This quality is especially valuable for medical implants, facilitating successful integration with surrounding tissues.
