This paper describes the reduction of the effective deuterium permeation rate of MANET obtained by the deposition of an alumina coating on the surface. The measurements of the permeation rate of deuterium were performed by a gas-phase permeation technique over the temperature range 533-773 K and for deuterium driving pressures in the range from 103to 105Pa. The maximum observed reduction in permeation, compared to the bare MANET steel, is around 4 orders of magnitude. © 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
