Iron-Chromium-Aluminum (Fe-Cr-Al) metal alloys have many beneficial properties for use within oxidizing environments. The presence of Cr and Al mean that the formation of a thin protective oxide layer composed of Al2O3 is preferred at high temperatures making it an ideal candidate for heavy liquid metal (HLM) and other extreme environments. Existing experimental results are summarized and reviewed. Corresponding mathematical models for oxide growth mechanisms and rates within differing reactive conditions are proposed and compared to each other. These models will be used in order to display how different parameters affect both the oxidation mechanism and corrosion protection. This is review aims to provide further support for the increasing use of Fe-Cr-Al alloys within nuclear applications.
