AIR FORCE SYSTEMS COMMAND WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OH FOREIGN TECHNOLOGY DIVISION
Pagination or Media Count:
An investigation was made of the lubricating properties of several glasses in extruding VT1-1 titanium and OT4-0, VT3-1 and VT5-1 titanium alloys. Degreased alloy specimens were dipped in a suspension of glass powder 0.07 mm particle size mixed with water and water glass with a density of 1.8-2 gcm superscript 3 and dried in air. The coatings obtained were 0.5-0.8 mm thick. Best results in extrusion of VT1-1 and OT4-0 were obtained with No. 295 glass and in extrusion of VT3-1 and VT5-1 with No. 185V glass.
