|1. (WO2018008151) TITANIUM SHEET AND PRODUCTION METHOD THEREFOR|
|Applicants:||NIPPON STEEL & SUMITOMO METAL CORPORATION
|Title:||TITANIUM SHEET AND PRODUCTION METHOD THEREFOR|
Provided is a titanium sheet with excellent moldability and a production method therefor. The titanium sheet is characterized in that: when the carbon concentration of a base metal is Cb (mass%) and the carbon concentration at a depth d µm from the surface is Cd (mass%), the depth d (the concentrated carbon layer thickness) satisfying Cd/Cb>1.5 is 1.0 µm to less than 10.0 µm; the Vickers hardness at the surface at a load of 0.245 N, HV0.025, is at least 200, the Vickers hardness at the surface at a load of 0.49 N, HV0.05, is lower than HV0.025, and the difference between HV0.025 and HV0.05 is at least 30; the Vickers hardness at the surface at a load of 9.8 N, HV1, is not more than 150; and the average spacing of cracks that occur on the surface when a 25% strain is applied in the rolling direction in the bulge-forming process is less than 50 µm, and the depth is 1 µm to less than 10 µm.
