Titanium unique properties
Relatively young metal titanium took the challenge of the new technological leap. It can now ensure high quality and adaptability in production by relying on additive technologies. Titanium is already changing from being an elite metal to being available for the mass market. At the same time, it remains a critical material for developing the strategic sectors.
STRONG AND LIGHTWEIGHT
Higher strength than the majority of steel alloys, and 45% lighter
RESISTS AGGRESSIVE ENVIRONMENTS
High corrosion-resistance (can be used in seawater or chlorine)
RESISTS EXTREME TEMPERATURES
High melting point at 1,668°C and stays strong at 650°C
Non-toxic and perfectly implants into the human body
Classic and innovative sectors
CREATING A NEW ERA OF TITANIUM
Our goal is to build fully vertically integrated manufacturing complexes to produce final titanium products.
Our vision is to create a New Era of Titanium. This will allow people everywhere to benefit from a technologically advanced and environmentally safe base material that will create products for a higher quality of life.
Reduce the cost of producing titanium metal
Velta is commercializing its own Velta Ti Process to replace the 80-year-old Kroll method to produce titanium metal efficiently. Velta Ti Process eliminates the step of obtaining a titanium sponge, is less energy-intensive, has fewer production stages, generates zero waste, and the cost of titanium is 4 times lower thanks to the production of revenue-generating byproducts.
Saving the Earth’s resources
The outdated Kroll process involves the creation of a large amount of chemical waste, including CO2, and the use of chlorine, which only contributes to the globe’s environmental challenges. Velta’s innovative technology eliminates the use of these toxic and dangerous elements.
Deploy new manufacturing technologies
The rapid growth of additive manufacturing is revolutionizing titanium powder metallurgy and opening new opportunities for metals.
Equal global access to titanium
Today only 5 countries produce titanium sponge, the final raw material for producing titanium metal. This excludes an equal competitive environment and enables geopolitical games. Velta Ti Process eliminates the stage of titanium sponge production making our titanium independent from the supplies and affordable to any company in any country.
Extend the benefits of titanium to new markers
For nearly a century, titanium has held the status of an elite metal used by industries that never compromise on quality: aerospace, shipbuilding. But now it is moving away from this exclusive club to become a metal for all of us, as rising living standards globally increasing demand for high-performance materials. Thanks to its quality, titanium is capturing new consumer markets in sports equipment, medical implants, automobiles, bicycle parts, and jewelry, while increasing its presence in defense and aerospace.
