Titanium is one of the most common elements found in the earth's crust,
however it is also one of the hardest to produce in metallic form and
requires extensive processing. It has several unique properties which make
it an ideal candidate for use in sound suppressors.
It is twice as
strong as steel.
It has a
melting point that is 400 to 700 degrees higher than any grade of steel,
including inconel. The melting point of titanium is 2700 degrees. The
melting point of lead is 600 degrees. If your suppressor gets over 600
degrees, you're shooting molten lead, not bullets. On a side note, the
titanium cools faster than steel (noted by the recent Army Evaluation Task
Force evaluation of our popular .223 suppressor).
It is more
corrosion resistant than any other metal except platinum.
It also has a
lower coefficient of expansion than steel, which makes the mount tighten as
the barrel and suppressor heat up.
It has a high
modulus of elasticity, which means it can expand somewhat under pressure
The grade of
titanium alloy that we currently use actually has twice the tensile strength
of pure titanium.
titanium alloy is extremely difficult to machine and much more costly when
compared to steel, we feel that the extra effort and expense is well worth
alloy with its superior strength, precision CNC machining, and modern high
temperature ceramic adhesive allows us to produce a uniform quality product
free from the vagaries of welded seams, which can distort the alignment of
