Abstract

This paper contains a description of thin layer activation (TLA) and its use in thermal cyclic corrosion testing. The use of the method is illustrated by the study of the oxide scale spallation on chromium due to thermal cycling. The material investigated was commercial Ducropur chromium, a new material produced by a powder metallurgical route. The chromium spallation rate for 1000 C was approximately 20 micro-g/cm2. Thermal cycling with a maximum temperature of 800 C did not lead to any detectable spallation.
