Abstract

The anodic polarization of zircaloy-2 in different electrolytic baths has been investigated in order to obtain thick oxide films with properties suitable for wear applications.

The operative conditions to obtain hard, thick, compact oxide films resistant to thermal shocks have been determined. The influence of the bath composition and temperature on the oxide growth is reported.
