About this product
What is Titalium?
With the shortage of copper on the international market the price of brass has increased by over 80% in the last two years and will continue to increase until it is not feasible to construct padlocks from it any longer.
ABUS have been working on an alternative for a long time and have now developed a new alloy called Titalium. As a mixture of both aluminium and titanium, it is both lightweight and stronger with excellent weather resistant qualities.
We expect this to replace the traditional brass padlock within 2-3 years.
About this padlock:
This is the long shackle shackle Titalium model suitable for 95% of applications. It has the same high quality stainless mechanism found in other ABUS padlocks with a strong hardened shackle that is finished with a special Nano coating. This basically keeps the shackle rust free more effectively than standard nickel coatings found on other padlocks.
