Ti-Oxide Growth Rate

Ti-Oxide Growth Rate

Ti-Oxide Growth Rate

Hi there,

I'm trying to determine how quickly I can create a thin layer of titanium oxide on a titanium heat stake tip that is used in a soldering process. The heat stakes are initally "burnt in" at 400 c for 5 minutes but this seems like an arbitrary value. Can anyone point me in the right direction towards finding temp/time combinations to develope this oxide quickly?



RE: Ti-Oxide Growth Rate

One point: as titanium is so called reactive metal it can start to burn temperatures around 500 C. This temperature is greatly depend of size and shape of titanium object.
