Title: THE CLADDING OF DELTA-PHASE ZIRCONIUM HYDRIDE

Abstract

A study was made of the cladding of solid and powdered delta-phase zirconium hydride in both rod and flat shapes with stainless steel. The program included investigations of metallurgical bonding, both with and wlthout the use of metallic barrier materials. Types 304 and 347 stalnless steel were used for claddlng material. The intermediate barrier-layer materials used were niobium, molybdenum, a combination of copper and molybdenum, and a combination of copper and niobium. The pressure-bonding techniques, involving the use of gas pressure at elevated temperatures, was employed in this study. Variable tlmes and temperatures with a constant pressure of 10,000 psi were utilized to produce bondlng. The best results were achieved r-n cladding delta-phase zirconium hydride directly with Types 304 or 347 stainless steel. Geod bonds were obtained by pressure bonding at 16OO deg F for 3 or 4 hr subsequent to pressure bonding at 19OO deg F for 1 to 2 hr at a pressure of 10,000 psi. Partial bonding was achieved between niobium and zirconium hydride and molybdenum and zirconium hydride. (auth)
