In situ thermogravimetry analysis (TGA) was used to investigate the incipient corrosion behavior of alloy 230 exposed under a reducing environment in a temperature range of 850-1000°C. Both oxidation and loss of alloying elements of alloy 230 were observed to occur concurrently in these conditions. The surface oxide which formed on the substrate does not appear to be as effective in providing a protective layer during the incipient corrosion period.
