STUDIES OF ZIRCONIUM-IRON-TIN ALLOYS. Report No. 6 (Final) for July 1, 1958-March 31, 1959

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The intermetallic compounds of the zirconium-irontin system (i.e., ZrFe/ sub 2/ and Zr/sub 4/Sn) were studied at 500 and 1100 C. The alloys were prepared from iodide zirconium and high-purity iron and tin by nonconsumableelectrode arc melting techniques under an inert atmospherc. Specimens were encapsulated in Vycor and annealed at the prescribed temperatures followed by a water quench. Data were gathered through the use of metallographic, x-ray diffraction, visible incipient melting, and magnetic susceptibility techniques. It was determined that Zr/sub 4/Sn (24.5 wt.% Sn) and (24.5 wt.% Sn and 7 to 8 wt.% Fe) are separate phases which are not ... continued below

It was determined that Zr/sub 4/Sn (24.5 wt.% Sn) and (24.5 wt.% Sn and 7 to 8 wt.% Fe) are separate phases which are not in equilibrium with each other. ZrFe/sub 2/ was firmly established at its stoichiometric composition of 55 wt.% Fe, and it apparently has negligible solubility for tin. The specific magnetization of this ferromagnetic compound is of thc order of 55 cgs at room temperature. Its Curie temperature is about 355 C. (auth)
