Ferrotitanium Testing Laboratory


Ferrotitanium (FeTi) is an alloy consisting of iron and titanium, mainly used in steel production. Manufacturers melt titanium scrap and sponge with iron in an induction furnace to create 70% grade ferrotitanium. This alloy combines easily with other elements like carbon, oxygen, nitrogen and sulfur to make stable compounds.

With its low density, excellent strength and high corrosion resistance, ferrotitanium has several industrial and commercial applications. This alloy produces quality improvements in steel and stainless steel materials, which is why it’s commonly used in steel refining, including the deoxidation, denitrification and desulfurization processes. Other uses of ferrotitanium include the production of steel for tools, military and commercial aircraft, steel and stainless steel processing units, paints, varnishes and lacquers.

See ASTM A324 for a listing of all ferrotitanium specifications.
