  3. Abstract:
  4. In order to improve titanium corrosion behavior, we can increase the thickness of oxide layer on titanium surface during anodizing process and by electrochemistry. In this research, self-color anodizing of Ti in sulfuric acid was done, and anodizing layers were created in different colors. The highest value of chromaticity was 37.8 for the anodized sample in 10 V, and the lowest value was 8.6 at 15 V. The oxide layer thickness was calculated by optical method (light refraction). The anodic film thickness increased by increasing the anodizing voltage. The highest thickness of anodic film was 190 nm in sulfuric acid solution for the anodized sample in 80 V. Corrosion resistance of anodized Ti was studied by potentiodynamic polarization curves in biological solution of Ringer's at 37 °C. On increasing the anodizing voltage further, corrosion rate of the alloy increased from its lowest rate. The lowest rate of corrosion was for the sample anodized in 10 V, which was 0.96 × 10 -3 mpy. © 2011 ASM International
