Abstract The oxidation behavior of International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER)-reference tungsten grade has been evaluated in dry air in the temperature range 600–800 °C. At 600 °C, the scale remained protective while the integrity of W 18 O 49 layer was kept. Rapid increase in mass gain resulted from massive cracking at local areas in the W 18 O 49 layer. Then, a coarse non-protective columnar WO 2.92 scale was developed which favoured rapid inward oxygen transport into the alloy… CONTINUE READING
