Titanium at room temperature has a silvery grey-white metallic color and a lustrous appearance.

This is a very strong and light weight metal with the highest strength to weight ratio of all metals. It is the reason why titanium is mixed with many metals like iron, aluminum, etc. to obtain alloys that are light and strong. Titanium also has a high resistance to corrosion. This increases the applications of the metal. Chemicals of titanium are also used extensively as catalysts in the industrial production of many organic substances and as catalytic converters to convert harmful gases to relatively harmless alternates.
