Oxidation was made of austenitic stainless steel AISI 317 aluminum coated by chemical vapor deposition in a fluidized bed at temperatures of 700 °C and 750 °C, in an environment with 100% steam, to evaluate their corrosion performance. Gain mass curves were ground and oxide films were analyzed by SEM and X-ray diffraction to observe the morphology of the oxides. Thermodynamic simulation was carried out during steam oxidation of the substrates  for  possible  solid  and  gaseous  phases  which  could  be  formed  in  the presence of an environment with 100% water vapor and atmosphere pressure. The form of attack at 750 °C is similar to 700 °C, although the rate of oxidation is increased, because the diffusion of the alloying elements and the  oxidation  reactions  are  faster.  Aluminum  coatings  have  good  resistance  to steam oxidation and forming a surface layer of Al2O3,  that  is  dense  and  adherent, which protects the substrate from corrosion attack.
