Lorenzini is the world’s first company to use titanium in the technology for riding equipment. The idea of applying titanium to horse tack came from knowing that titanium’s extraordinary properties allow us to create items that riders and veterinarians alike are calling no less than “revolutionary”.
Among the 11,000 known metal and alloys, titanium is the only metal to be entirely biocompatible with the human body, so with the bones and soft tissues of a horse. Titanium doesn’t cause any side effect and is the only metal available that does not contain any disrupting elements.
Titanium is characterized by its low density (4.51 g / cm³), approximately 56% of the stainless steel’s. For this reason it is the most used material in the aeronautic and aerospace fields, because of its lightness and its strength.
The mechanical characteristics of titanium are comparable to the stainless
steel’s: Titanium has the highest mechanical resistance / weight ratio compared to any other metal. It resists to corrosion with the same effectiveness as platinum.
Choosing Lorenzini’s titanium products is about safeguarding your horse’s health, improving its behaviour and its competitive performance in the sporting arena.
