TIMET is the gold standard for titanium in commercial aerospace.


TIMET is a leading supplier to the airframe structural market.

Titanium is used in airframe structures because it can withstand comparable loads better than aluminum, is lightweight, has minimal fatigue concerns, is highly corrosion- and heat-resistant, and has galvanic compatibility with carbon fiber reinforced epoxy composites.



The Gold Standard

OEMs are designing the next-generation aircraft based on life-cycle costs, including maintenance costs, aircraft availability, and reliability. This new design philosophy leads OEMs to increased use of composites and titanium structures. As a result, titanium use has expanded to approximately 15% by weight of the total airframe structure.

Following the strictest tolerances, optimizing our processing to save costs, and pre-approval by the major OEMs.
