Research has been underway at Los Alamos National Laboratory for several years to develop
an alloy capable of containing toxic materials in the event of a fire involving a nuclear
weapon. Due to their high melting point, good oxidation resistance, and low solubility in
molten plutonium, alloys based on the Ti-Ta binary system have been developed for this
purpose. The course of the alloy development to-date, along with processing and property
data, are presented in this overview.
