The interaction between surface engineering and corrosion resistance of high temperature materials is reviewed. The most important classes of surface treatments utilised technologically to provide high temperature corrosion protection, namely surface alloying, diffusion coatings and also metallic and ceramic overlay coatings, are discussed. The various ways in which surface engineering can interact with high temperature corrosion resistance are considered. Finally, the important role of surface modification techniques, in particular ion implantation, as a research tool for corrosion science is highlighted.
