- Air oxidation tests of iron-aluminum alloys containing 16 and 28 at. % Al, were conducted at 1300C to determine the effect of alloy composition and section thickness on time to breakdown of oxidation resistance. Oxidation rates of 16% Al were significantly higher than for 28% Al (Fe₃Al). The times over which the oxide scales remained protective correlated with extent of aluminum depletion of the alloy matrix and were therefore a direct function of the initial aluminum content of the alloy, the section thickness, and oxidation rate. The oxidation rate of the Fe₃Al alloys was significantly reduced by addition of 0.1% Zr, which improved the adherence of the scale during thermal cycling to room temperature. However, the oxidation rates of the Fe₃Al alloys were higher at 1300C than those reported for oxide-dispersion-strengthened (ODS) Fe-18%Cr-10%Al alloys containing Y₂O₃. Times to the onset of breakaway oxidation were similar for zirconium-containing Fe₃Al and the ODS alloys, the lower oxidation rate of the latter offsetting the higher initial aluminum of the former. Studies of the effects of chlorine (HCl) on the oxidation/sulfidation resistance of Fe₃Al- based alloys were conducted using test facilities at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) in the United Kingdom. Alloys were exposed to a test gas composed of CO₂, H₂, H₂O, and H₂S Plus 1000--5000 ppm HCl at 450 and 550C for 1000 h. Weight gains were relatively low and were generally less than companion specimens of Fe-Cr-Al alloys.
