Titanium is well known as one of the most corrosion-resistant metals. However, it can suffer corrosion attacks in some specific aggressive conditions. To further increase its corrosion resistance, it is possible either to modify its surface, tuning either thickness, composition, morphology or structure of the oxide that spontaneously forms on the metal, or to modify its bulk composition. Part 2 of this review is dedicated to the corrosion of titanium and focuses on possible titanium treatments that can increase corrosion resistance. Both surface treatments, such as anodization or thermal or chemical oxidation, and bulk treatments, such as alloying, are considered, highlighting the advantages of each technique.

Abstract

Titanium is well known as one of the most corrosion-resistant metals. However, it can suffer corrosion attacks in some specific aggressive conditions. To further increase its corrosion resistance, it is possible either to modify its surface, tuning either thickness, composition, morphology or structure of the oxide that spontaneously forms on the metal, or to modify its bulk composition. Part 2 of this review is dedicated to the corrosion of titanium and focuses on possible titanium treatments that can increase corrosion resistance. Both surface treatments, such as anodization or thermal or chemical oxidation, and bulk treatments, such as alloying, are considered, highlighting the advantages of each technique.
