The aim of this paper was to investigate the effect of oxygen content and temperature on the formation of oxide scales of four different steel grades. Thermo gravimetric experiments were carried out. Small samples of low carbon steels with different compositions were exposed to a gas containing a certain amount of oxygen and at temperatures in the range of 1373-1623 K. The mass gain of the steel sample was recorded. On the basis of the oxidation curves, the parabolic rate constants were reported. Post-experimental investigation of the samples was performed using scanning electron microscope and light optical microscope techniques. The results were compared with the scanning electron microscopy graphs of the steel samples taken from the real industrial reheating furnace.
