The study presented here focusses on a systematic analysis of oxidation mechanisms of the well-known Cr20Mn20Fe20Co20Ni20 alloy and one of its ternary sub-system Cr33.3Co33.3Ni33.3 which were reported in the literature to exhibit attractive mechanical properties. Both alloys are single phase fcc prior to oxidation and were simultaneously exposed to different oxygen containing atmospheres at 700° C and 800° C for durations up to 288 h. Cr20Mn20Fe20Co20Ni20 showed poor oxidation resistance at high temperatures due to its high amount of manganese leading to the formation of non-protective Mn-oxide scales. In contrast, a relatively homogeneous and protective chromia layer was found to form on CrCoNi at 700° C and 800° C after each exposure time. Mass change-, SEM- and XRD analysis of the oxide layers were performed in the present study and provide a better understanding of the oxidation mechanisms as well as the impact of the alloy composition on oxidation behavior.
