Oxidation Control

  • Samuel A. Bradford


No pure refractory (high-melting) metal performs well in high-temperature air. In fact, not even metals melting as low as 1850°C (3360°F) oxidize satisfactorily, with the sole exception of chromium. Table 15-1 gives the melting points of high-melting pure metals and explains the problems they undergo at high temperatures.
