When metal is exposed to an oxidizing gas at elevated temperature, corrosion can occur by direct reaction with the gas, without the need for the presence of a liquid electrolyte. This type of corrosion is referred to as high-temperature gaseous corrosion. This article describes the various forms of high-temperature gaseous corrosion, namely, high-temperature oxidation, sulfidation, carburization, corrosion by hydrogen, and hot corrosion.
