For the purpose of improving corrosion resistance of silicon carbide (SiC) in a simulated BWR-NWC environment, corrosion resistant coatings to SiC substrate were examined. Chromium, titanium and zirconium alloy coatings processed by physical vapor deposit and subsequently heat treatment were evaluated in terms of adhesion to SiC during coating process and corrosion resistance in high temperature water.
