Study on Sensitization Susceptibility and Texture of Cold Rolled AISI 304LN Stainless Steel
Attempt has been made to correlate the cold rolling (CR) texture with the degree of sensitization (DOS) in rolled 304LN after ageing at 500-600oC for various durations. The susceptibility of sensitization is observed to increase with %CR cold rolling from 5-25% and aged at 500-600oC. No one to one correlation between texture and DOS is observed. Brass component, overall, seems better for lower DOS while Goss component led to relatively higher DOS values. It is observed that the ratio of Brass to Copper may have a critical value for lower DOS.
