Abstract: The tribological properties, in specific, oxidation and hot corrosion behavior were found to be a dominant property to improve the surface characteristics of titanium alloys and many researchers tried different methods to improve it. In order to achieve a better coating, there are numerous surface treatment techniques have been performed. The techniques, such as nitriding, carburizing, oxidation, physical vapor deposition (PVD) and chemical vapor deposition (CVD) executed to improve the surface properties of titanium alloys. In addition to this, laser was also used in surface modification. The coatings made by laser techniques exhibited strong metallurgical bonding with the substrate materials, owing to their high energy density. It was also found that the technique satisfied the industrial requirements for all applications.
