Abstract

The effects of alloying elements and microstructures on both hardness and corrosion resistance in martensitic stainless steels are examined. The study aims to improve the corrosion resistance of commercially applied high strength martensitic stainless steels. The corrosion resistance of martensitic stainless steels is improved to the level as same as SUS304 by suppressing the formation of δ-ferrite which leads to the promotion of Cr-carbide precipitation, and also by increasing the Pitting Index value.
