It is requested to obtain the self-welding characteristics in sodium on the contacting materials of "MONJU" components. By tension breakaway method, the tests were up to date conducted on many kinds of materials in sodium which was not cold-trapped$$^{(1)}$$ and was purified by the cold trap temperature of 190$$^{circ}$$C$$^{(2)}$$ or 145$$^{circ}$$C$$^{(3)}$$. These results were used for material screening. The present study relates to the dwell temperature dependence of 200 hrs. self-welding characteristics on the selected hard facing materials and main structural materials of "MONJU" in 450 $$sim$$ 700$$^{circ}$$C sodium purified by the cold trap temperature of 140$$^{circ}$$C or 145$$^{circ}$$C. The main results obtained are as follows. (1)The breakaway stress shows the apparent dwell temperature dependence. (2)The combinations of SUS 304/itself and SUS 316/itself self-weld above 500$$^{circ}$$C and the breakaway stress increases linearly with the dwell temperature. (3)Ferritic steels exhibit the higher breakaway stress than austenitic stainless steels. (4)The combination of LC-1C/itself does not easily self-weld even at 700$$^{circ}$$C. The combinations of Stellite No.6/itself, Colmonoy No.5/itself and Inconel 718/itself self-weld at 700$$^{circ}$$C and do not self-weld at 600$$^{circ}$$C. Only Colmonov No.5 breakaways at the inside as well as the self-welded interface. (5)Only Colmonoy No.5 shows the apparent corroded surface among the test materials after exposure to 700$$^{circ}$$C sodium for 200 hrs. LC-1C exhibits flaking partially from the substratum. It is because the coating layer (0.2 mm thick) was too thick and there were the problems of the grid blast method on substratum surface and the manufacturing method on coating edge.
