Isothermal Oxidation Behavior of the AISI430 Stainless Steel at High Temperature in Static Air
Isothermal oxidation behavior of the AISI430 stainless steel was investigated at 900°C and 950°C in air. Isothermal themogravimettric analyses were performed at high-temperature for 360ks (kilo-seconds). The microstructures of the oxide films on the stainless steel were characterized by SEM and chemical analyses were performed by EDS and X-ray diffraction. The oxide film included outer layer and inner one. The outer layer was magnetite and hematite oxides with no significant amounts of chromium and the inner one was formed by iron and chromium spinel. Significantly accelerated and anomalous oxidation was observed with the stainless steel AISI430 in air at 900°C.
