Corrosion Behavior of Ceramic Dispersion Strengthened High-Cr Stainless Steel
In the present work, corrosion characteristics of ceramic dispersion strengthened (CDS) high-Cr stainless steel (SS) has been investigated. For the preparation of CDS SS with uniformly distributed reinforcements, TiC particles were mechanically activated with Cu powder by using high-energy ball mill machine, and then Cu-coated TiC particles were mixed with molten SS. Potentiodynamic polarization curves were experimentally measured on unmodified SS and CDS SS in 0.05 M NaCl solution. The values of corrosion potential Ecorr, corrosion current io, pitting potential Epit and polarization resistance Rp were quantitatively determined from the measured potentiodynamic polarization curves. From the result, it is concluded that CDS SS exhibits higher corrosion resistivity than unmodified SS.
