Modified Fe-Mn-Si-Al alloys for high temperature oxidation.
J Electrochem Soc 1987 Dec; 134(12):3209-3210
This paper describes the testing of modified fe-mn-si-al alloys containing differing proportions of al and si. Results showed that alloys with a higher si content with respect to al have a number of advantages, including lower oxidation rates, the absence of spalling during thermal cyclings, and a lack of beta-mn phase formation, making them potential chromium-free substitutes for stainless steel.
