Materials
We produce titanium damascus composites tikron and tikron with zirconium.

Tikron
We manufacture tikron from titanium and its alloys using three classes of the Russian titanium.
Titanium VT-1.0 is a metal with a chemical purity of 99.99% ti. It has high plasticity.
The titanium alloy OT-4.1 is an alloy of 96% ti and 4% al. It has is medium hardness and is characterized by good weldability.
The titanium alloy VT-20 is an alloy of 90% ti, 6% al, 2% mg and 2% zr. It has high hardness and an ability to take strengthening at 890-930 °C.

We selected these titanium classes after many experiments to achieve good forging, ductility and, most importantly, to get the maximum color range during thermal oxidation.
In comparison with titanium, tikron is harder, more solid and flexible. Owing to the use of the VT-20 titanium class, tikron is good for use in those cases where the material experiences dynamic loads, because tikron is flexible and does not break or bend.

Tikron is a hi-tech material which features are high strength, light weight, flexibility, resistance to corrosion, hypoallergenicity and ability to get a range of beautiful colors.

We keep the chemical purity of the material while manufacturing. Continuous shavings at tikron processing proves that the material is welded qualitatively, technological integrity has not been violated and the material has not been saturated with gases.
Tikron with zirconium
Recently, our team began to produce titanium composite with zirconium which consists of pure titanium, two titanium alloys and zirconium in various variations of thicknesses. Thus we get the four-colored material with a unique pattern and composition. Zirconium, like titanium, has a high chemical resistance, does not cause allergies, and has the ability to exhibit relief (texture) during thermal oxidation, which allows to bring even more expression to creative works.

We are constantly experimenting with different thicknesses and combinations of different alloys to create maximum artistic expression and the uniqueness of the drawing.
Manufacture
The material manufacturing process is divided into several stages.
1. Careful preparation of titanium plates and alloys.
2. Diffusion welding of the plates in vacuum or inert gas environment at 1150 - 1200 °C.
3. Forging the obtained composite manually by a hydraulic press to get the required dimensions and unique patterns.
4. Processing of forged composite by high-power metal-cutting machines to remove the oxide film and the alpha case layer, and achieving the necessary final dimensions of the material.
5. Creating the product color by heating in the air in the temperature range 400-850 °C (thermal oxidation).
