Corrosion and Oxidation Behavior of a Fe-Al-Mn-C Duplex Alloy
AbstractThe low-density steels represent a topic of great interest within the scientific world because of the great demand from the steel market of increasingly lighter materials, also featured by an optimal mix of the mechanical properties. In this work, the corrosion and hot oxidation resistance of a Fe-15%Mn-9.5%Al-6.5%Ni-1%Cr-0.43%C were analyzed and related to the microstructural features. The material behavior was analyzed both in the as-cast and in the heat-treated state. For the corrosion test, the experimental plan was fulfilled using four different concentrations of HCl and four temperatures. In the case of hot oxidation resistance, the exposure time and the temperature effects were evaluated. The corrosion resistance in HCl was comparable to the stainless steel, and the iso-corrosion curves showed excellent resistance of the 1300 °C solution-treated material, especially at low temperatures, but it is also good at high temperatures due to the hot oxidation.
