Corrosion Resistance of Steel 45 Subjected to Electromechanical Treatment and Surface Plastic Deformation

  • N. G. Dudkina

The corrosion properties of normalized steel 45 are studied after a combined hardening of its surface layer, which consists of electromechanical treatment and surface plastic deformation (EMT + SPD). The effect of different aggressive environments on the structure, microhardness and corrosion rate of the hardened surface layer is determined.
