The article describes a new method of applying titanium coatings on ceramic surfaces using special tools - rotating brushes with titanium fibers. The soldering of ceramic-metal joints involves the use of expensive active solder eliminating the lack of wettability of the ceramic. More economically advantageous solution is to give a wettability to the ceramic surface, by applying a durable titanium coating and using a wider range of soldering materials. The titanium coating obtained by means of friction metallization can be used as an alternative to metallization, for example by thermal spraying methods. The metallization method using rotating brushes enables the titanium coating to be applied on flat and 3D surfaces. The article outline the structure of the tool and the method of applying the coating, as well as the results of the tests carried out.Keywords: Friction metallization, metallization of ceramics, titanium coating, cup brushes, soldering ceramics and metal
