An electroplated coating system was developed to protect a TZM molybdenum alloy 5 Ti, 0.08 Zr re-entry vehicle from oxidation at high temperatures. The coating system, comprised of an undercoating of 0.0005 inch chromium, an intermediate coating of 0.001 inch nickel, and an outer coating of 0.0005 inch chromium, was adherent, oxidation resistant and thermal-shock resistant compatible with AMRAD TARGET Experiment requirements.
