The crevice corrosion that occurs on titanium in chloride solutions at elevated temperatures can constitute a serious problem. The resistance of three titanium materials to this form of corrosion has been evaluated by immersion and electrochemical tests. The results show that all three possess superior corrosion resistance to that of commercially pure titanium, and that the two which contain palladium are the best. On the basis of these tests, mechanical properties and in-service experience, guide lines for the advantageous use of these materials are proposed.
