What is the application of titanium clad copper?

First, what is titanium clad copper?

Titanium clad copper is a metallic material coated with a titanium layer of a certain thickness (generally 1.0~1.2mm) on a copper rod/bar. It is the main component of the metal anode. According to its cross-sectional geometry, it can be divided into round, flat, square, and rectangular titanium-clad copper, and so on.

Titanium clad copper combines the excellent electrical conductivity of copper and the excellent corrosion resistance of titanium. It can be used as a conductor carrying large currents under relatively corrosive working conditions while ensuring the uniformity of current density and eliminating the pollution of electrolyte caused by the corrosion of copper conductors.

Therefore, it has become the main component of the production of metal anode electrolyzers.

Second, Titanium clad copper advantages

titanium clad copper

1. Completely eliminate the crevice corrosion of the joint between the titanium plate and the conductive rod
2. Increase the current density of the seed plate groove and ensure the uniformity of current density
3. Eliminated the phenomenon of the “flower plate” of the original piece, the initial piece is more consistent with the plate difference
4. The initial growth cycle is further shortened
5. There is no need to add a rust-removing auxiliary process except for the joint between the titanium plate and the conductive rod, which reduces the labor intensity.

Titanium-clad copper bar have widely application prospects in the field of electrolysis.

Third, The Production Methods Of The Titanium Clad Coppers

The common production methods of titanium clad copper mainly include the following: hot extrusion method, hot extrusion and stretching method, explosion method, and explosion and rolling method.

The titanium-clad copper manufactured by hot extrusion has high strength and good composite fastness, and it is not easy to separate titanium and copper. The titanium-clad copper currently on the market is mainly produced by hot extrusion and stretching.

The explosive method has low production efficiency and high cost. At present, no one adopts this method in industrial production.

The explosion rolling method is to use a large size titanium tube and copper rod to make billet by explosion method and then the titanium-clad copper is made by the groove rolling method. It is not suitable for mass production, and can only produce rectangular and flat rods.

In summary, Titanium clad sopper used in some electroplating and electrolysis processes, the titanium-clad copper rod is immersed in the electrolyte, which can increase the current density and increase the work efficiency.
