The Korea Institute of Materials Science(KIMS) and Ooksan IMT Co., Ltd. succeeded to develop a ton of sponge titanium firstly in Korea.

Manufacturing technology of sponge titanium has been monopolized by USA, Russia, and Japan for a long time. Moreover, only few companies in these countries are suppliers of the sponge titanium. It is very meaningful that KIMS opened the way to apply related technology to the domestic market.


Sponge titanium can be applied to the chemical plants, leisure, medical devices, aircraft, and etc.
