Paper Title:
Tin Addition to Improve the Oxidation Behaviour of NbSs/Nb5Si3 Based In Situ Composite
  Abstract

This work focuses on the effect of tin additions (2, 5 and 8%) to the MASC alloy (Nb-25Ti-8Hf-2Cr-2Al-18Si) on the microstructure and the oxidation behaviour at 815°C in air. The alloys are mainly constituted of a niobium solid solution plus the () Nb5Si3 silicides. For the higher Sn additions (5 and 8%), a fourth phase is evidenced: it is enriched in Sn and has a crystal structure close to Nb3Sn. The oxidation resistance of these alloys is clearly improved by tin additions: the oxygen inward diffusion is hindered and consequently the fragmentation of the silicides is avoided. Cracks in silicides are no longer observed for the MASC containing 8%Sn. This effect is not attributed to a better efficiency of the oxide scales but rather to the reduction of the niobium solid solution fraction with tin additions.
