Abstract:

The paper discusses etching titanium and alloys of the Ti-Al system in solutions containing hydrochloric and sulphuric acid and in solutions containing hydrofluoric acid. Hydrogen absorption is established with respect to time. The presence of aluminum in titanium reduced its hydrogen absorption. Alloys with additional elements were found to have less hydrogen absorption than have binary alloys.
