Resistance, lightness, non-oxidability

Over the last decades, technological development has been set by the need to obtain a consistent reduction of the weight of the end product. This has led to the considerable increase in the use of high resistance aluminium alloys, special steels, carbon and titanium.

For this purpose, LLS was among the first companies, at international level, to manufacture fasteners made of titanium and its alloys. Actually, besides being distinguished by its advantageous resistance/weight ratio (40% lighter than steel, 60% more than aluminium but twice resistance) titanium allows long duration over time and considerable resistance against corrosion and attacks by external agents. 

However, the difficulty of machining titanium alloys limited the use of this material, thus determining the excellence of companies, like LLS, capable of developing an advanced technical knowhow and machinery suitable for the cycle for producing components made of this metal. 

Resistance, lightness, non-oxidability and its capacity to bear high temperature levels have led to the use of titanium in strategic industries such as the aeronautical industry, regarding which LLS has been able to meet the strict requirement standards, by obtaining the UNI EN 9100:2009 certification. In particular, the distinctive characteristic of titanium and its alloys to be highly refractory, inert to extreme temperatures and resistant to attack by mineral acids and alkali allowed the use of the components for manufacturing tools and machinery intended for high friction speed and subjected to heat wear. Over the last years, there has been a strong increase in the use of titanium and its alloys in the sports industry, for manufacturing motorcycle and bicycle components to which LLS dedicated the Carbon-Ti brand, right due to its lightness and resistance characteristics. 

Other sectors of use of titanium and its alloys.
