Corrosion resistance of nanocrystalline titanium
Halina Garbacz , Andrzej Królikowski
AbstractThis chapter contains a broad analysis of factors affecting nanocrystalline titanium corrosion resistance, and a brief description of commonly used evaluation methods. It was found that grain refinement generally enhances titanium corrosion resistance. Thus, it can be concluded that grain boundaries are preferential sites for the nucleation of protective passive films. Nevertheless, the relationship between corrosion resistance and grain size can be nonlinear. Other effects accompanying severe plastic deformation, such as changes in crystallographic texture, may be the reason for this phenomenon.
