Abstract

Ti-W, Ti-Mo, Timetal LCB, and Ti-10-2-3 were produced via electrochemical reduction of sintered mixed oxide preforms in a pre-electrolyzed, molten calcium chloride electrolyte at 900 to 1000°C. Electrolysis voltages of 2.0 to 3.2V were applied for times ranging from 6 to 24 hours across a graphite anode and Grade 2 commercial purity (CP) titanium cathodic current collector. As a result, fully reduced beta titanium alloys exhibiting a slow-cooled equilibrium structure with fine prior beta grain size and compositional uniformity were produced.
