The treatment with high frequency currents (HFC) is traditionally used to improve the mechanical properties of metal products, in particular hardness and wear resistance. A new method of carburization of titanium samples in a solid carburizer using HFC is proposed in the work. The temperature of the carburization is characterized by a wide range from 1000 to 1400 °C. As a result of thermochemical treatment, a hard coating of TiC (H ≥ 20 GPa) with a microstructure (d = 7-14 μm) consisting of nanoparticles (d = 10-12 nm) is formed on the titanium surface. These coatings are widely used in friction pairs for various purposes, including machinery, instrumentation and medicine.
