Abstract The behaviour of titanium in HNO 3 -HF pickling baths has been studied and understood. In a nitric-hydrofluoric acid solution, a polished titanium sample constitutes a passivatable or a passive system depending on the initial concentrations of HNO 3 and HF. The titanium dissolution process in such solutions has been discussed using the passivation models described in the literature. During the pickling experiment, passivation of Ti occurs and is related to the concentration of… CONTINUE READING
