A new copper-titanium alloy enables 3D printing

Collaboration between researchers at the RMIT, CSIRO, University of Queensland, Ohio State University report a new titanium alloy that incorporates copper.

Titanium has excellent corrosion resistance and the highest strength-to-density ratio of any metallic element. It can be combined with other elements to produce strong, lightweight alloys for numerous high-performance applications in technology, manufacturing, and medicine.
