The evolution of phase composition and growth stresses in oxide scales growing on the polycrystalline Fe-15at.%Al alloy at 700°C in air was studied by in-situ synchrotron X-ray diffraction and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The oxidation kinetics was determined by thermogravimetry. The results showed that, under these conditions, metastable -Al2O3 appears only during the first minutes of oxidation and the main oxides formed since the early oxidation are -Al2O3 and -Fe2O3. High volume fractions of -Fe2O3 caused accelerated oxidation rates in the first hours. -Al2O3 and -Fe2O3 grow epitaxially, evolving compressive and tensile growth stresses, respectively.
