An exploratory investigation was made of the feasibility of manufacturing zirconium-tin alloys by powder metallurgical methods. Several series of zirconium-rich alloys were prepared from commercial grade tin powder and 1 ZrH2 powder made from Grade III crystal bar, 2 ZrH2 powder made from Grade I crystal bar, or 3 ZrH2 powder made from Grade C Bureau of Mines zirconium sponge. The corrosion rates and other physical properties of the various alloys are given and the results from crystal bar zirconium were compared with those from zirconium sponge. A brief study was also made of resistance sintering of zirconium-tin alloys made from zirconium-sponge hydride powder and tin powder.
