Abstract in another language

Oxidation of zirconium-based alloys results in a thermally-grown oxide
scale with excellent corrosion resistance, and good wear and friction properties,
which make them interesting for tribological applications. Nevertheless, adhesion of
the oxide layer to the substrate must be enhanced. A new three-step oxidation
process was introduced in order to achieve an improvement. Following an initial
oxidation step (1st step), a heat treatment was carried out in vacuum during which
the oxide dissolves and diffuses into the metallic zirconium substrate (2nd step).
These two steps resulted in an oxygen dissolution layer with increased hardness
formed in-between the oxide and the substrate, which serves as a bonding layer with
increased thickness. In a 3rd step a new oxide layer was obtained. The improved
oxide layer adhesion was characterized by indentation tests on three different groups
of oxidized samples of the newly developed alloy.
