Research institutes and also industrial companies in Czech Republic are involved in High Temperature Gas Cooled Reactor (HTGR) program and activities related to the study of advanced materials and HTGR technologies. These activities are supported by EC (within international projects, e.g. FP7-ARCHER, ALLIANCE, GoFastR can be mentioned) and also by Technology Agency of Czech Republic. Within these activities, degradation of metallic and ceramic materials in the high temperature helium atmosphere is investigated, and also new experimental facilities for material testing are built. As examples of tested materials, Alloy 800 H, ferritic steel P91, austenitic steel 316, Inconel 713 and 738 and corundum ceramics could be named. The selected results of exposure experiments in the high temperature helium environment are presented in this paper.
