Highlights •The dominant wear mechanism of Zr-4 alloy was transformed from adhesive to abrasive wear after pre-oxidization.•ZrO2 layer presented a transition from monoclinic to tetragonal phase after irradiation.•Fe11+ irradiation reduced ZrO2 to Zr2O3 due to the bombardment-induced Gibbs segregation (BIS) or lattice relaxation.•ZrO2 film could promote the abrasion-resistance properties of Zr-4 alloy before and after irradiation.
