Nondestructive Evaluation of Corrosion Progression on Titanium and Its Alloy Surface by Wetting Method


Article Preview

The corrosion behavior of pure titanium and Ti-6Al-4V alloy in NaF solutions and the wettability of pure water on the specimens after corrosion were investigated. The relation between the change of surface chemistry and roughness of specimens after corrosion and the wettability of pure water droplets on such surfaces were discussed.
