Why do top Grade bikes need titanium screws?
The difference of Titanium screws and other general stainless steel screws, carbon steel screws is that titanium material has a special advantage.
1. Titanium screws are lighter than Steel Screws
Titanium screws are light, because the density of titanium elements is lower than that of other metal materials. It is only between 60% of ordinary No.45 steel, the titanium screws will be extremely light. which also reduces the weight of the whole bicycle body, reduces the cycling resistance, and makes cycling more relaxed.
2. Corrosion resistance of titanium screws
Bicycles often walk in all kinds of weather, sun and rain, ordinary screw fasteners such as in this weather for a long time, it is easy to rust, lock the situation.And the corrosion resistance of titanium screw can work in wet weather and seawater medium, oxidation resistance corrosion performance is far better than stainless steel, With excellent corrosion resistance to Alkali , Acid ,chlorine organic articles, nitric acid, sulfuric acid and other excellent corrosion resistance.
3. Appearance of titanium screws
Titanium screws without any surface treatment, its appearance is the best of many material screws, the color of titanium screws can be varied through other surface treatment colorful.
4.Grade 5 Titanium screws compare with Steel stainless Screws ,the strength is more higher.it is twice strength as Steel stainless. Titanium screws are more harder and more resistant to wear, so it's stronger and more durable.
