Summary Surface alloying via fluidised bed reactor (FBR) chemical vapour deposition (CVD) can be used to produce adherent and highly corrosion resistant surface layers. In this work, 304, 316, and 409 stainless steels and 1020 steel were chromised, producing distinct surface layers tens of micrometres thick. The composition and surface of these layers was characterised using microscopy, GDOES, and XPS. Surfaces were highly enriched in Cr and displayed improved corrosion resistance as determined by electrochemical evaluations. This work demonstrates that it is possible to form continuous, functional and corrosion resistant Cr-rich surface layers via FBR-CVD on a variety of steels.
