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.

Ferrotitanium Testing With McCreath Laboratories
At McCreath Laboratories, we provide independent analysis for your materials needs, including sampling services. We’ll start by sending our experienced technicians to gather a representative sample of your materials. Our team has the background, training and tools necessary to collect an representative sample, whether in bulk or containers. We use mobile crushing units to crush the gross sample of ferrotitanium and minimize how much material we take off-site. All subsequent testing meets our high standards for accuracy and reliability.
Our expert team provides third-party analyses of a variety of materials, including:
Having an accredited laboratory analyze your bulk material ensures you can protect your investments and maintain the highest level of quality. Our team will consult and guide you throughout the entire process to make sure you’re aware of all steps throughout the sampling and testing process.
Laboratory Professionals at McCreath Labs
We use both classical and cutting-edge instrumental techniques to analyze ferrotitanium samples. We’re an ISO/IEC 17025 Accredited Laboratory.
