Alloy 22 (UNS N06022) and Ti Grade 7 (UNS R52400 are the current corrosion-resistant materials of choice for fabricating the waste package outer barrier and the drip shield, respectively, for the proposed high-level nuclear waste epository at Yucca Mountain. In this work, the general and crevice corrosion behavior of annealed and welded Alloy 22 and Ti Grade 7 exposed in basic saturated water (BSW-12) for four and eight weeks at 60C to 105C were evaluated using the ASTM G78 method combined with surface analysis and statistical analysis of corrosion rate.
