Abstract:

Titanium - Mo alloy 4201 has high corrosion resistance in media containing 10-17 hydrochloric and 10 formic acids at 100C. An increase in the corrosion resistance of titanium VT1-1 in organochlorine media in the pressence of hydrochloric acid at 100C can be achieved by introducing an oxidizer, for example, 0.01-0.1 oxygen compounds of chlorine. Titanium VT1-1 and alloys 4204 and 4201 break down very rapidly in anhydrous organochlorine media in the presence of phosgene and hydrogen chloride at a temperature of about 140C.
