Titanium wire cloth mesh is valued for its high strength, light weight and corrosion-resistant properties.  It is used in a wide variety of industries; aerospace, medical and plating just to name a few. Commercially Pure (CP) Titanium Alloys are over 99% titanium. Titanium always has a protective oxide coating that prevents electrolytic reaction with other metals. Therefore using titanium wire mesh baskets can improve the process efficiency of anodizing aluminum components.  Also titanium wire mesh baskets or racks will out last those made of aluminum, meaning less down time.  Only commercially pure titanium should be used in anodizing applications, other titanium alloys will cause contamination.

CP Titanium Grade 1

UNS R50250

Grade 1 is the softest titanium with the highest ductility and corrosion resistance. It exhibits excellent cold forming characteristics, welding properties, and high impact toughness. Grade 1 titanium is often used for architectural, medical, marine, and chemical processing manufacturing.
