Title: EFFECT OF THE ALUMINUM FLOW PATTERN ON THE BONDING OF ALUMINUM TO OXIDIZED ZIRCALOY-2

Abstract

The bonds produced when hot aluminum is allowed to flow smoothly from an extrusion die to the oxidized surface of a heated tube of Zircaloy-2 are consistently inferior to those produced with back-extruded flow. The difference is believed to be due to the reduction in, or elimination of, the oxide layer on the aluminum that comes in contact with the surface of the Zircaloy-2. This method of bonding aluminum to Zircaloy-2 is covered by Canadian patent 702,438 January 1965.
