Passive oxide films on austenite steels (with chromia being major component) render generally high corrosion resistance of these materials in atmospheric air, steam and some acids. At a microscopic level, this resistance depends on the quality of the layers, their tightness, brittleness and recovery processes and to a large degree is influenced by microstructure of the substrate.
