Paper Title:
Plasma Carburizing and Post-Treatment of Austenitic Stainless Steel
  Abstract

Plasma carburizing of AISI 316L austenitic stainless steel was carried out at low temperature to improve the surface hardness without degradation of its corrosion resistance. And the post-treatment, namely electrochemical surface brightening process was carried out to clear away a layer of thin black film on the plasma carburized samples and improve the surface quality of the hardened stainless steel. The surface appearance, roughness, microstructures, microhardness and corrosion resistance of the samples before and after brightening were analyzed and compared. Experimental results of plasma carburizing at low temperature showed that high-quality hardened layers can be produced at the appropriate process parameters.The electrochemical brightening process can be used as a post-treatment to restore the original color and further improve the corrosion resisitance of the plasma carburized stainless steel.
