Abstract:

Niobium alloys with 2 - 40 titanium have high corrosion resistance in solutions of mineral acids at a temperature of 40C. An increase in titanium content decreases corrosion resistance. Maximum corrosion is observed in acid media at an energy potential of 100 mv. Formation of a hybrid layer and embrittlement of Me occurs at more negative potentials due to diffusion of H in Me.
