© Springer Science+Business Media Singapore 2017.The search for alloys with improved high-temperature specific strength and creep-resistance properties for aerospace applications has led in the last decades to sustained research activities to develop new alloys and/or improve existing ones. Titanium and its alloys are excellent for applications in structural components submitted to high temperatures owing to their high strength to weight ratio, good corrosion resistance and metallurgical stability. However, the high affinity to oxygen is one of the main factors that limit their application as a structural material at high temperatures. Materials with adequate behavior at high temperatures and in aggressive environments have become a scientific requirement for technological and economic reasons. The goal of this work is the roughness and creep studies of the Ti–6Al–4V alloy after treatment by the nitrogen Plasma Immersion Ion Implantation (PIII-N) process. The aim of this process is the improvement of the superficial mechanical properties of the Ti–6Al–4V alloy. The selected alloy after ionic implantation process by plasma immersion was submitted to creep tests in 600 °C at 250 and 319 MPa. The techniques used in this work were Auger spectroscopy, Atomic Force microscopy (AFM), X ray, Raman spectroscopy and creep testing. The results show the significant increase of material resistance, it can be used as protection of oxidation in high temperatures applications.
