Abstract : The report describes procedures that have been developed for the surface treatment of titanium alloys. It was not possible to obtain conclusive information on the relative utility of the various coatings. Therefore, information has been included on all coating systems for which reports of significant development work were available, without attempting to assess the usefulness of the particular coating or to compare it with similar coatings applied by other techniques. Cotaing processes which are described include mechanical treatments, electrochemical treatments, treatments for applying metallic coatings other than electroplating, and treatments for applying hard, nonmetallic coatings. Special treatments to control thermal radiation are also described. (Author)
