Abstract : Methods are described for electroplating nickel on zirconium and zirconium-tin alloys with as-plated adhesion greater than 6,000 psi, and heat treating to produce alloy-diffusion bonds of 50,000 psi. This supplements the results previously reported (BMI-707). Other metals can be electroplated over nickel, diffusion bonded to the zirconium or zirconium alloy. A method of preparing zirconium for tin, lead-tin-solder, and silver- solder coating is also described. Other metals can be electrodeposited on these coatings.
