It maybe that there are fewer titanium suppressors because of the cost, same as inconel versus stainless for the baffles.  Baffles, the preference because of durability resides with the inconel over stainless.  You can of course use a stainless with a higher content of inconel to help with the cost. 
I am no means an expert in any way, just commenting based on the metal technology only, as suppressors are a whole different ballgame with the chemicals, temperatures and stress unique to them.

Though I'm yet to receive my Tavor, I've heard some complaints that the front handguard get's uncomfortably hot after a lot of successive firing.

I wanted to know what you guys thought of putting something like this in the front handguard:

I would think having the heat dissipate would be a good thing.
This would tend to focus it back on the barrel and other parts., would it not?

Are you sure it's the entire hand guard or is your fingers hitting the screw that retains it onto the gun? That's what I have felt heat from.

There is a way to help that. I discussed it with the free float barrel stuff. I made a video this weekend where I'm going to free float my barrel but I didn't finish so the video isn't done either. But I did get the part I'm talking about here filmed. I'm talking about removing the "U" insert.

Free floating the barrel is something I am very interested. And yes the handgaurd gets pretty warm

While heat dissipation is definitely desired, there should be plenty of room for it to vent off the barrel above. The solid hand-guard probably doesn't let all that much heat out anyway. I imagine the insulator would make a minor difference with relation to barrel temperature with and without, but it may make the hand-guards significantly more comfortable.

My forearm design also aids in heat dissipation. I had hoped to have my second prototype ready to unveil this past weekend but no luck. As soon as I can I will let everyone in on it.

I performed Pretorian's button switch mod on my Tavor with my Lasermax. It works perfectly. I also used two layers of heat shrink tubing to protect the cable from the barrel. Thanks Pretorian.

I will be able to use this same switch for the Lasermax IR as it is interchangable with two screws.

Well the Titanium has been ordered for the SAR Suppressor. The final materials are going to be 316 Stainless and Grade 5 Ti. Probably going to end up renting a B&K 2209 for the dB testing as well (unless anyone in the southeast wants to help us test it!).

Production will begin once the materials show and we will start taking pre-orders.

What part of the "Southeast"? I'm in TN.

I'd be more interested in a free floated barrel if IWI release barrel blanks and/or extensions for aftermarket barrels.

IWI US has a FaceBook post (from 5 hrs ago) soliciting suggestions of what to include in their web store.
Maybe an opportunity to include your 2 cents worth...

A (small) Tavor bottom rail is available from Zahal.org for $60 plus $8 for air shipping from Israel. I received men in about 10 days. (Delivered by USPS with signature required.) Requires two small holes to be drilled for mounting.

If you have a IDF model or Mepro-21 on your Tavor check out my new kit.It's in the (General Discussion) area.The topic is New product for the Mepro-21.

I came up with a mod for the magwell.the problem my mod attempts to solve is that I noticed while doing mag changes that the tavor seemed to be very picky about magazine position during insertion. If the magazine isn't almost perfectly aligned the channel in the rear of the well would push the magazine forward against the front of the magwell either making the magazine go all cockeyed or causing the front of the mag to jam against the front of the well. This mostly happened when I attempted to insert the mag at a slight side to side angle. So this is my solution I opened the rear channel up in the shape of a V so that if a mag is inserted slightly at an angle the opening will allow the magazine rib in the back of the mag to fall in the channel thus allowing the magazine to continue to be inserted into the magwell
tools need are a dremel/or air grinder with pointed carbide cutters, medium sized hand file,small hand files about 5.5",air blow gun,120grit sandpaper

You can see where I scribed a mark with a marker following the line of the factory magwell flare.I then stuffed a shop rag in the well to keep some of grindings out of the gun.I made a rough cut following these lines with my air grinder taking care not to get into the back wall of the well.then I squared up the cuts with my medium hand file.then I rounded the deepest part of the cut to smooth the transition from angle to the straight of the channel. Finalizing the general shape with my small hobby file set.after that is complete I went ahead and smoothed it all out with a bit of 120grit sandpaper
