This review considers surface engineering techniques for high temperature corrosion resistance. A brief description of high temperature corrosion is given and criteria for surface engineering are outlined. The most important classes of surface treatments for high temperature corrosive applications are discussed, notably surface alloying, diffusion coatings and metallic and ceramic overlay coatings. Also, the important role of surface modification techniques, in particular ion implantation as a research tool for corrosion science, is highlighted.
