CP Titanium Grades 1 - 4

Commercially Pure (CP) Titanium is used primarily for its corrosion resistance.  It resists pitting, crevice and cavitation corrosion, erosion, and stress corrosion cracking in salt water, marine atmospheres, and a broad range of acids, alkalis, and industrial chemicals.  The corrosion resistance results from a very thin (~10nm), stable, continuous oxide layer that regenerates instantaneously if any oxygen or moisture is present.  Titanium is mostly corrosive resistant when placed in oxidizing or mildly reducing media.
