Titanium and Zirconium are labelled "reactive metals” because they very rapidly react with oxygen and/or nitrogen to form refractory compounds. Melting of reactive metals involves protecting the molten metal from sources of nitrogen and oxygen. Therefore, vacuum melting techniques and inert ceramic moulds are used.
