    Abstract

    Crevice attack of titanium and its alloys has been observed in high-temperature chloride solutions, chlorine gas, and certain acid environments. In chloride solutions, the attack becomes more severe as concentration and temperature increase. For chlorine gas, water is found to be an effective inhibitor.
