Description / Abstract:


This specification covers the engineering requirements for producing a carbon-oxygen-nitrogen-bearing case on titanium and titanium alloys by means of a molten salt bath, and the properties of the case.


This process has been used typically to increase the resistance to galling and wear of titanium and titanium alloys. This process is not recommended for use on alloys having an actual tin content greater than 3 percent.

Safety - Hazardous Materials:

While the materials, methods, applications. and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use. It is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure familiarity with the safe and proper use of any hazardous materials and to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel involved.
