An evaluation was made of test panels of four titanium alloys that were exposed to a marine atmosphere for seven years at Point Reyes, California as part of the ASTM B-3V1 1957 test program. No evidence of corrosion or significant change in physical properties was found. It was concluded that titanium is virtually immune to corrosion under most atmospheric exposure conditions.
