Summary

A commercially available ceramic-to-metal braze alloy, Nioro ABA, was subjected to high-temperature testing in air to evaluate its oxidation behavior, microstructural stability, and material compatibility for potential application in electrochemical devices. Oxidation studies were performed on the as-received braze alloy foils, on wetting samples prepared using yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) substrates, and on Nioro ABA brazed YSZ/ferritic stainless joints. The results of these investigations and the corresponding metallographic and elemental analyses are presented and discussed below.
