Titanium rod ends have been used for decades in high-end applications. Compared with rod ends made of other materials, they have the following advantages:
- Titanium Rod Ends are Tough. When a pistol bullet hit aluminum, fractures radiate at the speed of sound and the bullet blows on through. But when the bullet hits tough titanium with the same thickness, it slows the bullet to a stop. Because the high density of Titanium Rod Ends, they can consume more impact force than other materials.
- Titanium Rod Ends are Light. Rod ends made of Titanium differ from other steel ones in that they weigh considerably less for reduced rotating and reciprocating weight. On average, our titanium rod ends weigh 33% less than their steel counterpart with the same reliability and strength.
- Corrosion Resistance. The corrosion resistance of Titanium is an added benefit to service life for rod ends on different vehicles and equipment. Corrosion fatigue is one of the major cause of rod ends failures in motor vehicles.
