Overview on the Corrosion Behavior of Ultra-Fine Grained Materials Fabricated by Equal-Channel Angular Pressing
With the development of the ECAP technology, the corrosion behavior of the UFG materials has been investigated in some degree. Two categories of corrosion behaviors of UFG material were discussed in this paper. The large proportion of the non-equilibrium grain boundaries and high residual stress inside of the grain were regarded as the key to affect the corrosion behavior of the UFG materials. The corrosion behavior was also affected by the ECAP factors especially the press pass number and the pressing temperature. Finally some prospects of making UFG materials combined with high mechanical property and good corrosion resistance by ECAP technology were expounded.
