Isothermal oxidation behavior of Al added Mo-Si-B in-situ composites was investigated under Ar-20%O2 and air atmosphere over the temperature range of 1073–1673 K. The Al added Mo-Si-B composites ((Mo-8.7mol%Si-17.4mol%B)-1mol%Al) were prepared by arc-melting, and homogenized at 2073 K for 24 h in an Ar-flow atmosphere. The ternary Mo-Si-B in-situ composite exhibited a rapid mass loss at the initial oxidation stage and then the passive oxidation after the substrates were sealed with borosilicate glass in the temperature range of 1173–1473 K, whereas it exhibited a rapid mass gain around 1073 K. On the other hand, the Al addition significantly improved the oxidation resistance of Mo-Si-B in-situ composites at temperatures from 1073–1573 K. These excellent oxidation resistances are considered to be due to the rapid formation of a continuous, dense scale of Al-Si-O complex oxides.
