A few facts about titanium

Titanium is the only metal that combines extremely high strength and very light weight with outstanding heat and corrosion resistance.

That’s especially true for the alloy we use for Iron Works premium grill grates - 90% Titanium, 6% Aluminum and 4% Vanadium.

Don’t get us wrong, we think our steel grates are wonderful. It’s just that titanium offers triple the strength and half the weight. And titanium won’t corrode when exposed to harsh weather, grease or most chemicals.

In fact, the natural blue patina that titanium develops over time actually adds to its rust resistance and helps keep food from sticking.

From mining to dining

Titanium is the fourth most plentiful metal on Earth. The titanium in our premium grates starts as the mineral rutile in an Australian mine. The difficult and complicated process for converting the ore to metal has only been commercially viable for a little more than 50 years.

The pure titanium metal next enters a huge electric melting furnace, where it is alloyed with aluminum and vanadium to enhance its strength. The 10,000 pound, 36 inch diameter ingots of alloy that emerge are repeatedly forged and worked down into half-inch diameter rods, then drawn into the hardened quarter-inch rods that become our grill grates.

Our grates are in good company. There are 40,000 pounds of titanium on a Boeing 747. In medicine, replacement hips and joints, surgical staples and sutures are titanium. Golfers are buying 15 million pounds of titanium clubs this year.
