We study the influence of wear-resistant gas-thermal plasma and ion-plasma nitride coatings, diffusive electrochemical treatment, and vacuum nitriding on the fatigue resistance of specimens made of VT22 titanium alloy. The experimental results demonstrate that the wear-resistant hard coatings decrease the fatigue limit, whereas the procedure of sand-blasting increases the fatigue resistance of the alloy. Unlike diffusive coatings, plasma coatings suffer cracking and exfoliate from the surface of titanium alloy, which reveals their insufficient adhesion and high stiffness. The obtained results are quite urgent for the aircraft industry, where the VT22 alloy is extensively used.
