Ferritic stainless steels are used in specific applications where corrosion resistance, oxidation resistance and a high mechanical resistance are required. Shot peening is a process applied to add residual compression stresses in metallic surfaces with the intent of improving the material when exposed to corrosion due to stress and fatigue. Some studies about the effect of the shot peening process on the fatigue resistance, bending fatigue behavior, and residual surface stress in the ferritic stainless steels have been performed. However, the effect of the shot peening process on the corrosion and oxidation resistance of the stainless steel is not well known. In this context, the purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of the shot peening process on these superficial properties of ferritic AISI430 stainless steel. The obtained results showed that the ferritic AISI430 stainless steel samples treated with shot peening presented a significant modification on the surface morphology and an important decrease of oxidation and corrosion resistance, evidencing that the shot peening process compromises the chemical and physical properties of the surface.

Key words: ferritic stainless steel; shot peening; corrosion; oxidation

1 Introduction

Ferritic stainless steels are used in applications where high corrosion and oxidation resistance is required. These types of steel have as characteristics easy processing and good formability combined with a low price, compared to other types of stainless steel1,2.

The shot peening process is a surface treatment method that increases the surface hardness of metallic materials by creating a sharp compressive stress due to ball impact on the material surface3-5. It is a cold working process where small spheres bombard the surface of the workpiece by means of a jet of compressed air.

During the shot peening each ball impacting on the metallic surface behave as a small hammer, increasing the hardness of the surface, creating a small indentation or semi-sphere. To create these indents the metal surface must undergo a mechanical limit above its yield stress. Due to overlapping of indentations a uniform layer of compressive stress is generated on the metal surface. Shot peening is applied to improve the fatigue resistance of metallic components and can increase lifespan, resistance to alternating loads, and corrosion resistance6-15.

However, the shot peening process showed no real improvements in corrosion resistance16. Residual stresses are generated by plastic deformation applied to the metal, and these residual stresses remain after removal of the external force17 and can be beneficial or detrimental depending on the sign, magnitude and distribution of these stresses18. The most common classification of residual stresses refers to the coverage area and can be macroscopic, microscopic and submicroscopic residual stresses. On the other hand, the oxidation resistance of ferritic stainless steel can also be improved by refined microstructure after shot peening. The reason is that with the refined microstructure, the diffusion of chromium ions along the grain boundaries is much quicker than through the grains themselves19. This leads to the early formation of the protective chromium-rich oxide layer, which slows down further growth of the iron oxide layer due to its low permeability. Researchers studied the effect of the shot peening process on the fatigue resistance, bending fatigue behavior and residual surface stress in the ferritic stainless steels20-23. However, there is not a review of the effect of the shot peening process on the properties of ferritic stainless steel exposed to corrosive and oxidative means.

In this context, the objective of this research was to evaluate the effect of the shot peening process on the superficial properties, such as corrosion and oxidation resistance of AISI430 ferritic stainless steel.

In this work samples of AISI430 ferritic stainless steel with dimensions of 260 × 140 × 1.2 mm were used. Table 1 shows the chemical composition of AISI430 stainless steel used in this study, according to the specification of the supplier.

Parameters and conditions used in the shot peening process were based on the literature3,11, as follows: spheres of ceramic material (SiO2) with a nominal diameter of 0.6 mm; jetting angle of approximately 80° with respect to the base plate; distance of jet appliance of approximately 100 mm; nominal air pressure of 6 bar; blasting time of 40 minutes and flow/mass flow blasting 50 kg.min–1.

After the shot peening process the stainless steel plate was washed using an ethanol jet and afterwards it was dried with a hot air jet. For the characterization of the steel sheet, after treated with the shot peening process, samples with dimensions of 20 × 20 × 1.2 mm were cut, degreased by immersion into detergent at 70°C for 10 min; then washed in ethanol, dried with jet air. These samples were labeled as shot peening samples.

Samples without shot peening process (used as a reference) were cleaned and a part was retained as it was received from the distributor (identified as bare sample) and a part was sanded (identified as sanded sample). The sanding process was performed through the use of sandpapers, respectively #180, 320, 600 and 1200. After the sanding process, the samples were washed with ethanol and dried with compressed air. The characterization analyses were performed with 5 samples (five replications) in each category (bare, sanded, shot-peening samples) and the results were calculated from the averages.

The morphological characterization was performed by using a Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), with a JEOL-JSM 6510LV equipment, and an acceleration voltage of 20 kV. The surface micro-roughness was evaluated in a contact profilometer (PRO500 3D).

The wettability was evaluated by contact angle measurements with the sessile drop method in equipment developed by the Laboratory of Corrosion Research (LAPEC) at UFRGS. The contact angle was determined by using image analyses software.

The corrosion performance was evaluated by open circuit potential (Ecorr) monitoring, polarization curves and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) measurements in a 0.05 M NaCl solution. A three-electrode cell was used to perform the analyses, with a platinum wire as a counter-electrode and a saturated calomel electrode (SCE) as the reference electrode. The area of the working electrode was 0.626 cm2. The polarization curves were performed in a potential interval between 200 mV (below OCP – open circuit potential) and 400 mV (above OCP) with a scan rate of 1 mV.s–1. The corrosion rate (icorr), the corrosion potential (Ecorr) and the polarization resistance (Rp) were determined by the taffel extrapolation from the potentiodynamic polarization. The measurements were obtained with the NOVA® software.

For the EIS measurements, the systems were monitored for 96 hours. The amplitude of the EIS perturbation signal was a 10 mV sinusoidal (rms signal) and the frequency range studied was from 100 kHz to 10 mHz using a NOVA® frequency response analyzer and a AUTOLAB PGSTAT 30 potentiostat.

Oxidation tests were conducted in an air atmosphere of 800°C for 96 hours, in a muffle (Sanchis). The mass gain of the samples was also monitored.

The phases present after the oxidation of the samples were identified by X-ray diffraction performed on a Philips X-Ray Analytical X'Pert-MPD System equipment, and a PW3040/00 console. The X-ray tube is PW3373/00 with Cu anode from the Laboratory of Ceramic Materials at UFRGS (LACER - UFRGS).

3 Results and Discussion

Figure 1 shows the SEM micrographs of the surface samples. It is observed that the Bare sample (Figure 1a) shows small surface irregularities, probably generated in the manufacturing process and handling. Sanded sample (Figure 1b) shows small creasesresulting of the sanding process, while the shot peening sample (Figure 1c) shows that the great deal of cracks and imperfections on the surface. Scratches and features of detached pieces were found all over the sample surface, that is, there are deformed layers near the surface after the shot peening.

Figure 1 SEM of the samples: (a) Bare, (b) Sanded and (c) Shot peening. 

The irregularities observed by SEM for the Shot peening sample promote greater surface roughness, as proven from the test results of 3D profilometry shown in Table 2 and Figure 2. This greater roughness is due to plastic deformation generated by the impact of spheres on the metal surface during the shot peening process.

Figure 2 Images of the surface topography obtained by profilometry for the samples: (a) Bare, (b) Sanded and (c) Shot peening. 

The sanded sample presents twice the roughness of the Bare sample, which was expected due to the process performed on the surface. However, these values are relatively low compared to the shot peening sample, denoting that the sanding process was performed regularly and evenly on the sample surface.

The wettability results (Table 2) show that the three samples present hydrophilic surfaces, with a contact angle lower than 90°[24]. However, the shot peening sample showed a contact angle of 31% lower compared to the sanded sample and 10% lower than the bare sample, demonstrating that the shot peening surface has the lowest surface tension.

The increased wettability of the shot peening sample is due to the irregularities and plastic deformations generated by the process, which promoted an increase in surface area (surface roughness) of the sample, making it more susceptible to chemical attack19,25.

The electrochemical behavior of the samples was analyzed by immersion in a 0.05 M NaCl solution. The open circuit potential (Eocp) was monitored during the 30 minutes of the immersion (Figure 3a), after polarization curves were performed (Figure 3b).

Figure 3 Open circuit potential (OCP) (a) and polarization curves (b) of the samples. 

The results of the open circuit potential - OCP - (Figure 3a) showed that the sanded sample presented a more active potential than the bare sample. This result was expected considering that the protective layer of stainless steel (chromium oxide) has been removed by the sanding process, what made the surface more susceptible to corrosion.

However, it is observed that the shot peening sample can be considered the most active, as it showed lower values of Eocp compared to other studied systems (bare and sanded). This could be associated with some points of hysteresis and thus making the sample more susceptible to pitting corrosion26.

The corrosion current density values (icorr) of the corrosion potential (Ecorr) and pitting corrosion potential (Epit) were obtained by analyzing the polarization curves (Figure 3b) and they are shown in Table 3. It is observed that the shot peening process significantly affects the sample surface and reduces the corrosion resistance of the sample. This behavior is confirmed by increased values of icorr and decreased values of Ecorr and of Epit[27]. The current density (icorr) is directly related to the corrosion rate, consequently, reflects on the intensity of the constant process of corrosion in specific electrolytes28.

Table 3 Results obtained by polarization curves and Tafel extrapolation. 

Sample icorr [–2] Ecorr [mV] Epit [mV]
Bare 2.0 × 10–8 –140 300
Sanded 6.5 × 10–8 –150 350
Shot Peening 2.5 × 10–7 –250 290

However, the shot peening sample presented higher values of icorr when compared to other samples. The lower corrosion resistance of the shot peening sample is attributed to increased surface energy and the residual stresses after the shot peening process, generating more active surfaces28.

These results are in line with the results obtained in the wettability test, because the smaller the contact angle the greater the surface wettability and thus the greater contact of the surface with the medium is, facilitating the chemical and electrochemical reactions on the surface and therefrom decreasing the corrosion resistance29.

Figure 4 shows images obtained by the optical micrograph of the surface of the test samples after potentiodynamic polarization. The presence of pits was observed in the bare sample and in the sanded sample, whereas in the shot peening sample it was not possible to observe the localized corrosion. As observed in Figure 1c, the sample shot peening features lots of cracks resulting from the blasting process. Therefore, it is believed that corrosion occurred preferentially within these cracks and for this reason, it is not possible to observe the corrosion spots on the surface (Figure 4c).

Figure 4 Optical micrograph of the samples surface: (a) Bare, (b) Sanded and (c) Shot peening, after potentiodynamic polarization. 

The sanded sample showed a passivity phenomenon at initial measurements of polarization curves, which then went on to present localized corrosion on the surface in the form of pits.

The electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) tests were performed (Figure 5). Figure 5 shows the Bode diagrams obtained by electrochemical impedance for the bare, sanded and shot peening samples performed in 24 and 96 hours in a 0.05 M NaCl solution. At 24 and 96 hours of immersion the diagrams showed no significant changes. However, the impedance of the Shot peening sample is lower than the other samples. This could be explained due to the increased roughness of the sample surface. This surface after the shot peening process is attacked faster due to increased surface energy and residual stresses after the shot peening process, which leads to a more active surface and thus more susceptible to chloride ions on the metal surface. These results correspond with the results obtained by the polarization test (Figure 3).

Figure 6 shows the image obtained by SEM micrograph of the samples surface after the EIS test. An increase in irregularities in the surfaces of the samples after EIS test is observed, when compared to the samples before the EIS test (Figure 1).

Figure 7 shows the relationship between the weight gains with the oxidation time for the studied samples. With an increase in the exposure time to high temperatures, all samples showed an increase in their weight. Throughout the oxidation test the shot peening sample showed the highest values of weight gain in relation to others samples. The three systems showed a tendency of parabolic oxidation kinetics. This oxidation kinetics is typical for ferritic steels30. The oxide scale growth rate is calculated by Equation 1, where M is the sample mass gain, A is the sample surface area, t is the oxidation time and Kp is the parabolic rate constant. The result of parabolic rate constant (Kp) (Table 4) of the bare sample is consistent with values presented in studies in the literature31-33. It is observed that the Kp results (Table 4) are similar for all the samples, which demonstrate that the formation of oxide was not influenced by the difference in surface samples.

Figure 8 shows the image of the surface morphology obtained by SEM of the samples surface after oxidation for 96 hours at 800°C. After the oxidation test, it was observed that the surfaces of the bare and sanded samples showed a formation of the oxide layer completely covering the surface. The observed shot peening sample showed that the oxide layer covered all the surface irregularities, forming small plaques of oxide over the surface. The fragile surface of the sample Shot peening caused increased formation and growth of oxide. Due the greater volume, the oxide tends to flake, forming small oxide plaques on the sample surface. The presence of plaques was observed in situations where oxidation is more intense and is associated with greater weight gain.

Figure 9 shows the XRD of the studied samples. The presence of chromium oxide (Cr2O3) was observed in all samples, which was expected, since the presence of this oxide is usual in stainless steels when exposed to high temperatures34.

Figure 9 Diffractograms of the samples after the oxidation test. 

The formation of spinels, mixed oxides of the manganese and chromium in the bare sample and sanded sample has been observed. Huntz et al.35 observed the presence of these same mentioned phases when AISI430 stainless steel was exposed to high temperatures.

In the shot peening sample the formation of these mixed oxides was not observed; however, the presence of magnetite and the presence of rich chromium phases was observed, such as ferrite chromium and chromium oxide. The formation of chromium oxide might happen due to the effect of the oxidation temperature, which is higher than the recrystallization temperature. After the formation of the oxide film on the surface, deformed grains begin to undergo recrystallization which results in a larger number of grain boundaries. These grain boundaries favor the formation of oxides and avoid the solubilization of chrome on the surface. Therefore, it was expected that a denser and more protective oxide would be formed on the deformed surface of the shot peening sample2,36. However, this phenomenon did not cause the decrease of the oxidation (rust growth) for the sample treated with the shot peening process in this present study.

4 Conclusions

From the obtained results in the studied conditions, it can be concluded that the shot peening surface treatment significantly alters the surface morphology of the samples of AISI430 stainless steel, by adding irregularities generated by the permanent cold deformations, resulting from the impact of the spheres. These surface irregularities generated by the shot peening process cause a significant increase in surface roughness and consequently an increase in the contact area with the medium, which should have contributed to the decrease in corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance.

Besides, the samples of AISI430 stainless steel treated with shot peening showed a more hydrophilic behavior, compared with the others samples, which contributes to the increase of the reactive surface in relation to the other samples.

Considering the microscopic analysis of samples after a potentiodynamic polarization test, it was not possible to observe the presence of pits in the sample treated with shot peening due to its high surface roughness. On the other hand, for the bare sample and sanded sample the presence of pitting was observed.

The shot peening sample presented the lowest oxidation resistance compared with the other samples and the growth behavior showed a tendency to parabolic profile. After the oxidation test, on the shot peening sample surface the presence of a chromium oxide was observed, and rich phases were observed on the bare and sanded samples. The Shot peening sample did not present the formation of spinels or mixed oxides of the manganese and chromium.

From the results which were obtained it was possible to observe that the shot peening process significantly altered the surface morphology, reducing the oxidation resistance and the corrosion resistance of the AISI 430 stainless steel samples.
