Abstract:

The report confirms the theoretical possibility of metal crystallization in the form of a dense layer from molten salts, using as a cathode a metal which is identical with the deposited metal and thus avoiding the influence of alloy formation on the creation of the dense layer. It establishes the effect of equilibrium of the melt on the growth rate of the titanium layers and apply the principle of precipitation of titanium films through electrolysis of molten salts to producing vanadium films. The effect of the main electrolysis parameters on the precipitation rate of the titanium film from a chloride melt is studied and a mechanism for inhibiting the growth rate of the coatings discussed. Finally there is a discussion of the simultaneous deposition of titanium alloys with vanadium and the structure and properties of the coatings on iron. Author
