The oxidation behaviour of the ODS alloy Cr5Fe1Y(2)O(3) prepared by 2 different manufacturing techniques was studied in Air and Ar/H(2)/H(2)O at 1000 C. TEM studies revealed that the oxidation rate of the Cr-based ODS material depends on the yttria content, but even more on its distribution. Transport of Y from the alloy to the scale occurs through dispersions which become embedded in the inward growing scale and/or by transport of Y along structural defects in the alloy. Because of the low rate of Y-incorporation in the scale, the alloys exhibit high initial oxidation rates. Enrichment of the alloy surface by Y implantation markedly improved the early stages of the oxidation process.
