The very particular properties of titanium make this metal the ideal choice for equestrian equipment. It is the only metal of all 11,000 (alloyed and non-alloyed) that is completely biocompatible with the human body, not causing any allergies or reactions. It is a very light, pure metal and extremely strong. Thanks to its resistance to acid based elements in the horse's mouth it promotes the production of saliva, this along with the non-mageneitc, biocompatible, and low temperature conduction properties of the metal increase the horse's comfort, wellbeing and ultimately also performance.
Unique properties of Titanium:
- Completely biocompatible and non-reactive. By nature titanium is covered by a layer of dioxide that destroys bacteria and is effective against pollution. It is non magnetic with very low heat conduction.
- Titanium is characterized by a low level of density (4.54g/cm³), approximately 56% of the density of stainless steel. For this reason it is the most frequently used material in aeronautic and aerospace technology, thanks to its lightness coupled with its strength.
- Strength; mechanical characteristics of titanium are comparable with ones of stainless steel; titanium has the highest ratio between mechanical resistance and weight compared to every other structural metal. It is resistant to pitting, denting and structural damage with the same effectiveness as platinum and is highly resistant to corrosion.
Lorenzini Titanium products offer benefits to the health of horses, improving behaviour and performance.
