Semi-protected edit request on 22 May 2019Edit

Titanium have a very high hardness scale number meanijg it doesnt bend / stretch easily when pressure is napplied to the metal. HugoNite (talk) 10:42, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

That's both unsourced and inaccurate. Hardness isn't the measure of bending or stretching. Also, although 6/4 has a high hardness (it's difficult to get some bolted joints to grip), that's not the case for all common alloys. Andy Dingley (talk) 10:49, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

Titanium Metal FilmsEdit

Please add the following to the section titled "Production and fabrication" or "Applications":

"Titanium metal thin films have been grown by atomic layer deposition using TiCl4 as the metal precursor and either hydrogen plasma or a trimethylsilyl-containing six-membered ring as the reducing agent."

Thank you. There are thousand of papers on the fabrication of Ti films of various sorts. This encyclopedia seeks sources such as textbooks, see WP:TERTIARY. --Smokefoot (talk) 02:59, 28 June 2019 (UTC)


"An unknown mechanism in plants may use titanium to stimulate the production of carbohydrates and encourage growth."

Primary production - detailsEdit

Reducing the High Cost Of Titanium has a clear description of the surface embrittlement "alpha case" and cracking, and how it is normally ground off and etched away by "pickling". Could add to Production and fabrication ? - Rod57 (talk) 22:04, 20 December 2019 (UTC)
