The program effort is directed toward the development of an insulated electrical conductor resistant to saturated potassium 850 C and mercury 538 C vapors. Surveys of candidate insulators, conductors and coating methods are substantially completed. Exposure of a number of candidate insulators, uninsulated conductors, and metal-ceramic seals in potassium and mercury vapor were initiated to provide preliminary corrosion data. The mercury vapor exposure tests are completed. Evaluation of a number of coating methods were initiated and preliminary results from the work are promising.
