    Abstract

    The author describes some corrosion properties that make unalloyed zirconium a candidate material for the chemical process industry. Zirconium is compared with competitive materials of construction; corrosion problems and testing are described; aspects of fabrication are discussed. The paper concludes with a description of applications in the Du Pont Company.
