Scaling occurs when metal is heated to very high temperatures and exposed to oxygen. The metal corrodes and forms unwanted deposits (scaling). For some manufactured products it is important to know the scaling resistance of the metal. This property indicates how much metal can be heated without causing undesirable reactions such as scaling.
