Abstract:The localized corrosion behavior of laser surface melted 304L austenitic stainless steel was studied by potentiodynamic polarization test. The extent of improvement in corrosion resistance was governed by the preferred orientation and the percentage of delta ferrite present on the surface of the laser melted sample. It was established by orientation imaging microscopy that the highest pitting potential value was obtained when grains were oriented in the most close- packed  direction compared to the random distribution of the base metal and other laser surface melted samples oriented in  direction. The sample with lower percentage of ferrite had good pitting resistance.
