Rolling of Titanium Powder and Its Alloys

  • V. G. Khromov


One of the methods of titanium metal production is the manufacture of powders with a wide particle size range from 20 microns to 1.5–2.0mm (hydride, calcium, hydride and electrolytic methods). A great number of studies have been carried out in this direction in the USSR, and as a result, powders of 0.02–2.0mm particle size have been obtained: calcium hydride and electrolytic processes developed by the Central Research Institute of Ferrous Metallurgy (CRIFM) named after I. P. Bardin(1,2,3) and an electrolytic method developed by the Institute of Titanium (Zaporozhye). The degree of purity in fine and coarse powders varied as a result of the high chemical reactivity of titanium. Fine powders were more contaminated especially with oxygen, while the coarse ones approached the chemical composition of iodide titanium. Titanium powder metallurgy has been further developed with the production of titanium metallic powders in the USSR.
