Commercial-pure titanium (CP-Ti) was subjected to cryogenic rolling at liquid nitrogen temperatures. The microstructures of the samples were investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The mechanical properties of Ti prepared by cryogenic rolling were measured using nano-indentation. The experimental results showed that the mean grain size of Ti was refined from 57 μm to 75 nm after cryogenic rolling. The hardness of the nanostructured Ti is as high as 3.36 GPa.
