The possibility of joining titanium alloys to advanced ceramics and producing components with extraordinary and unique properties could help expand their range of potential applications. This is extremely attractive for components used in the automotive and aerospace industries, where the combination of high-temperature resistance, wear resistance, and thermal stability with low-density materials, good flowability, and high oxidation resistance is of great relevance. For joining titanium alloys to ceramics, brazing and diffusion bonding appear to be the most promising and cost-effective processes. However, several challenges need to be overcome to successfully produce these dissimilar joints. In this context, the purpose of this paper is to highlight these challenges and the most recent advances that have been investigated to produce reliable titanium alloys and ceramic joints.
