The article presents the results of investigations of influence of rare-earth metal fluorides on structural changes in the metal of a titanium alloy VT22 for the purpose of using them in the flux filler of an experimental flux-cored wire for welding this alloy. It was shown that in welds made by argon-arc welding on VT22 alloy along the flux consisting of fluorides of rare-earth metals, the refinement of β-grains is observed. The introduction of LaF3 into the core of the experimental flux-cored titanium wire PPT-22 in combination with heat treatment allowed increasing the impact toughness of welds in argon-arc welding of VT22 alloy by 2 times — to 30.6 J/cm2. 8 Ref., 4 Tabl., 5 Fig.
