HOT ROLLING EFFECT ON THE CHARACTERS OF Zr-0.6Nb-0.5Fe-0.5Cr ALLOY. Characters of Zr-0.6Nb-0.5Fe-0.5Cr alloy after hot rolling have been studied. The objective of this research was to obtain of hot rolling effect on the characteristics of microstructures, hardness and phases formed in Zr-0.6Nb-0.5Fe-0.5Cr alloy. The hot rolling process of alloy carried out at temperature of 800 oC with retention time of 1.5 and 2 hours and a thickness reduction between 5 to 25 %. The results of this experiment showed that the Zr-0.6Nb-0.5Fe-0.5Cr alloy has Widmanstatten structure with microstructure evolving into deformed columnar grains and deformed elongated grains with increasing thickness reduction. Besides, the longer the retention time at temperature of 800 oC is the larger are the grain structures and formation of -Zr and Zr3Fe phase. The hardness of Zr-0.6Nb-0.5Fe-0.5Cr alloy has same trends i.e the larger thickness reduction gives higher hardness. The Zr-0.6Nb-0.5Fe-0.5Cr alloy can under go hot rolling deformation at a thickness reduction of 25 % and the formation of -Zr and Zr3Fe can increased of hardness and strength of Zr-0.6 Nb-0.5 Fe-0.5 Cr alloy.
