Abstract:

Under conditions of a nickel electrolysis plant, all titanium samples tested were found to be in the stable, passive state and are completely stable, and showed no disposition to intercrystalline corrosion. The strength of weld seams is equivalent to the strength of the base metal. Technological working casting, hot deformation, mechanical treatment does not reduce the corrosion resistance of titanium alloys under test conditions.
