Study onCorrosion Behaviour of AISI 316L Stainless Steel Treated with Air Cold Plasma

Abstract:

Article Preview

Pitting resistance of air cold plasma-oxidation 316L stainless steel was evaluated by exposing the specimens into a ferric chloride solution. The results indicate that the pitting resistance of plasma-oxidized specimens improved obviously. Potentiodynamic polarization curves were measured to study its corrosion behavior. The corrosion mechanism was also interpreted by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and Auger electron spectroscopy (AES).The results reveal that the oxide layer formed by the plasma treatment is much thicker than that without treatment and is double-deck structure, which leads to the change of EIS characteristic of sample surface.
