Cyclic hot corrosion studies have been carried out on(82~94) wt. % Fe-(5, 10, 15) wt. % Cr alloys con-taining either (1, 3)wt. % of Si or Pt as minor alloying elements in molten salts of($Na_2SO_4$+NaCl) between 820 and $920^{circ}C$. Si or Pt decreased corrosion rate with the most pronounced effect being observed for alloys having 15wt. %Cr. Especially, as Si or Pt contents are increased from 1 to 3 wt. %, improved corrosion resistance was obtained. The beneficial effect of Si addition is due to the presence of the Si-rich second phase along the grain boundaries as well as the formation of the protective $SiO_2$layer between substrates and oxide scale. The Pt addition also increased the corrosion resistance by enhancing the formation ($Cr_2O_3$+layers and by increasing the adherence of the oxide scale.
