Water vapor can be detrimental to the elevated temperature oxidation resistance of alloys that rely on the formation of a protective chromium oxide layer. The resulting degradation can be significant, particularly when such alloys are in the form of light gauge sheet and strip. Long-term test results will be presented for commercially available wrought austenitic stainless steels and nickel-base superalloys exposed at 1300°F and 1400°F in environments containing various levels of water vapor.
