Abstract : Zirconium was roll clad with nickel, monel, inconel, titanium, and an 18-8 stainless steel. With the exception of titanium, all of these metals formed compounds at the zirconium interface and the resulting bonds had poor mechanical properties. The titanium-zirconium bond had good strength and ductility and showed no tendency to crack during thermal cycling. Sandwich-type diffusion couples of zirconium with copper, molybdenum, platinum, silver, and tantalum indicated that all of these metals formed hard, brittle diffusion products with zirconium.
