Corrosion Behaviour Of Sintered AISI 316L Stainless Steel Modified With Boron-Rich Master Alloy In 0.5M NaCl Water Solution

Open access


Present study describes results of research conducted on sinters manufactured from a powdered AISI 316L austenitic stainless steel modified with an addition of boron-rich master alloy. The main aim was to study impact of the master alloy addition on a corrosion resistance of sinters in 0.5M water solution of NaCl. In order to achieve it, a potentiodynamic method was used. Corrosion tests results were also supplemented with a microstructures of near-surface areas. Scanning electron microscope pictures of a corroded surfaces previously exposed to the corrosive environment were taken and compared. It was successful to increase the corrosion resistance of AISI 316L sinters modified with master alloy. It was also successful in particular samples to obtain a densified superficial layer not only on the sinters sintered in the hydrogen but also on sinters sintered in the vacuum. No linear correlation between presence of the densified superficial layer and the enhanced corrosion resistance was noticed.
