Abstract : Work on the mechanical and corrosion properties of Zircsloy-2 is reviewed. The strength and ductility properties are given as a function of testing temperature, heat treatment and cold work. The role of hydrogen in affecting ductility is mentioned. The corrosion behavior of Zircsloy-2 as influenced by composition, heat treatment, and impurity content is presented. The pickup of hydrogen during corrosion is discussed in terms of corrosion mechanism. Implications of corrosion data in terms of heat transfer characteristics are pointed out.
