SCC susceptibility of cold-worked stainless steel with minor element additions

Nakano, Junichi; Nemoto, Yoshiyuki  ; Tsukada, Takashi ; Uchimoto, Tetsuya*

To examine the effects of minor elements on stress corrosion cracking (SCC) susceptibility of low carbon stainless steels with work hardened layer, a high purity type 304 stainless steel was fabricated and minor elements, Si, S, P, C or Ti, were added. Work hardened layer was introduced by shaving on the surface of stainless steels. The specimens were exposed to a boiling 42% MgCl$$_{2}$$ solution for 20 hours and the number and the length of initiated cracks were examined. SCC susceptibility of the specimen with P was the highest and that of the specimen with C was the lowest in all specimens. By magnetic force microscope examination, magnetic phase expected to be martensitic phase was detected near surface. Since corrosion resistance of martensite is lower than that of austenite, the minor elements additions would affect SCC susceptibility through the amount of the transformed martensite, i.e. austenite stability.
