Electrochemical Characteristics of Pure Titanium Produced by MIM (Metal Injection Molding) Process
Two kinds of pure titanium specimens, i.e., the first one is prepared by the ingot metallurgy (I/M) process and the second one is prepared by the metal injection molding (MIM) process were used in this experiment, and their corrosion behavior under stress has been investigated in several aqueous solutions by Slow Strain Rate Tensile (SSRT) test. Ti MIM specimen showed the larger maximum stress and the lower maximum stain than I/M Ti specimen in the deionized water. Both Ti I/M and MIM specimens indicated good corrosion resistance in the aqueous solution of 2.5 kmol/m3 H2SO4 + 0.2 kmol/m3 NaCl in which SUS304 stainless steel showed SCC, and showed the decrease of the maximum stress and the maximum strain in the aqueous solutions of CH3OH + 0.1 kmol/m3 HCl, where the brittle fracture appearance was more remarkable with an decrease of H2O in the solution.
