Titanium ore after processing of primary products for the titanium concentrate, rich titanium material (high titanium slag and artificial rutile). Titanium-rich material generally refers to titanium dioxide content of not less than 75% ti slag or artificial rutile, is the production of titanium dioxide and sponge titanium is an important raw material.
Titanium and its alloys have the advantages of high strength, corrosion resistance, no magnetism, low damping, good performance, good compatibility with carbon composites and good biocompatibility, and have the characteristics of superconductivity, shape memory and hydrogen storage. In aerospace, shipbuilding, marine engineering, Chemical, electrical, metallurgy, sports, leisure and other industries have a wide range of applications, known as "Space metal" and "Marine metals", is an important strategic metal materials. Titanium oxides have a low chemical level and are very stable, and it is extremely difficult to restore them to metals. At present, only the United States, Russia, Japan and China have a complete titanium industrial.
Titanium is the Chaoyang metal. On the one hand, titanium and its alloys in the aerospace, marine engineering, nuclear power and other fields have more and more important applications in the civil chemical industry, metallurgy, medical, sports, leisure and other fields are increasingly widely used. On the other hand, titanium resource storage is large and easy to exploit. Therefore, the world's major economies are competing for the development of the titanium industry.
Titanium-rich material is a physical production process, the formation of the titanium ore enrichment is commonly known as titanium dioxide and iron melting in the separation of Titania titanium dioxide high content of the enrichment, is the production of four titanium chloride, titanium dioxide and sponge titanium products of high-quality raw materials. China's current production of acid titanium dioxide has accounted for more than 80% of the world's market share, with the "Twelve-Five" national Industrial Policy adjustment, the sulfuric acid method of titanium dioxide will gradually be phased out, the chlorination of titanium White will become the production process of titanium dioxide leading, and rich titanium is the production of chlorinated titanium dioxide the Domestic titanium-rich market demand for years of rapid growth, the February 2012 demand breakthrough 2 million tons. Titanium-rich materials as a shortage of primary mineral products, market prospects are very broad.
