IperionX produces Titanium Components for Ford Motor Company

IperionX Limited has signed a working agreement with Ford Motor Company to supply titanium metal components using IperionX’s 100% recycled and low carbon titanium metal.

Ford Performance, known for high-performance vehicles such as F150 Raptors and Shelby GT500s, strives to compete in multiple racing series, including Formula One, Le Mans and NASCAR.

The decision to use IperionX followed intensive quality and strength testing of their low-carbon titanium. Ford determined that this material exceeds the requirements of ASTM international standards. Titanium components undergo extensive testing to determine the best surface treatments.

Titanium auto parts are characterized by their excellent strength-to-weight ratio and durability. They are sustainably recyclable, another plus point of IperionX technology. This is a critical step in creating a fully circular titanium automotive supply chain.

Ford is part of the First Movers Coalition, which promotes clean industrial materials. The group includes more than 50 companies, including Volvo, Apple and Amazon.

Anastasios (Taso) Arima, IperionX CEO said: “Ford has a commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. We are proud to partner with Ford to accelerate the deployment of a sustainable, circular titanium supply chain for the global automotive market.

Our low-carbon titanium metal is uniquely made with 100% recycled titanium and can significantly improve automotive supply chains by using high-strength titanium components with nearly half the weight of steel.

IperionX is re-shoring a lower cost and more sustainable U.S. titanium supply chain – shifting from a linear supply chain to a lower carbon, circular titanium supply chain – recycling titanium scrap to manufacture low carbon, high performance titanium components. We are pleased that Ford has partnered with us to improve automotive supply chains and scale our low-carbon, circular, titanium business.”
