Allegheny Technologies Incorporated (NYSE: ATI) announced that its thin
titanium Precision Rolled Strip® product was selected by the
Sensors and Integrated Systems Division of the Goodrich Corporation
(NYSE: GR) for use in heated floor panels for commercial aircraft. ATI's
product is Grade 2 titanium rolled to 0.012 inches (0.305 mm) thin by 42
inches (1067 mm) wide. Goodrich uses this thin and wide titanium product
to manufacture light weight and highly durable heated floor panels
installed at the entrance of most commercial airplanes.
"We are pleased to provide this unique titanium product to Goodrich,"
said Rich Harshman, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of
Allegheny Technologies. "This thin and wide titanium product is another
capability differentiator resulting from ATI's integrated supply chain.
From raw materials (titanium sponge) through melting, hot rolling, and
finishing in very thin gauges at wide widths, we offer a seamless, real
supply chain capable of meeting our customers' timing, quality, and
"ATI produces titanium foils as thin as 0.0005 inch (0.0127 mm), which
is about half the thickness of standard aluminum foil found in the home,
requiring unsurpassed manufacturing capabilities, including exceptional
gauge control, flatness, and surface quality. Goodrich recognizes and
values these attributes in the ATI product and further benefits from
ATI's reliable supply chain."
