Boronization of Titanium Alloys

Boronizing is a surface treatment by which boron atoms are diffused into the surface of the metal in quantities exceeding the solubility limit.
Hardness is improved and thus wear resistance increased as well as a number of other advantages such as corrosion and oxidization resistance. Continue reading

Brazing of Titanium and Titanium Alloys: Part One

Titanium and its alloys are well known for their high-strength and corrosion resistant properties but one distinct disadvantage is the challenges associated with bonding them with other materials. Brazing could provide a solution to these challenges since only the filler material is melted in the process therefore aiding dissimilar material bonding due to little or no effect on the two main subject materials. Continue reading
