Corrosion resistance of steel has attracted significant interest for industrial applications to minimise costs correlating to part failures and shorten serviceability. Meantime, millions of tonnes of slag, non-recyclable glass and automotive shredder residue are discarded into landfills every year, polluting environment. Combining these two main problems, we delivered an alternative solution to improve properties of high-carbon steel, by formation of multi-hybrid layering with in-depth analysis using EPMA and AFM – PF-QNM. Results revealed that generated multi-hybrid layering offered 39% and 78% improvement of corrosion resistance and hardness respectively. This finding is prominent for economic and environmental sustainability, consolidating industry demands for durable components in a cost-effective way to reduce dependency on new resources, thus, less wastes discard to the landfills.
