The slow strain rate testing (SSRT) on JIS Class 1, Class 2, Class 3, and Class 4 of commercially pure titanium (CP-Ti) was carried out in a hydrogen gas under high temperatures to 300℃ and high pressures to 75MPa. The degree of embrittlement in the hydrogen gas was evaluated from the tensile strength, the elongation and the reduction of area with respect to those measured in air at the same temperatures but under atmospheric pressure. It was revealed that the tensile strengths of the CP-Tis did not reduce regardless of their classes even in the hydrogen gas at a high pressure of 75MPa. The elongation and the reduction area at 100℃ rather increased in the high-pressure hydrogen gas than those in air.
