This paper presents results from a study regarding the influence of three alkali salts (KCl, NaCl, and K2CO3) on the initial high temperature oxidation behavior of high alloy stainless steel Sanicro 28 (Fe31Cr27Ni) at 535°C. It was found that all three salts were corrosive, however, with clear differences in terms of reaction initiation.
