Data and Report from S&T Project Number 20035: Investigating the Effect of Post Processing Procedures on Corrosion Resistance of Additively Manufactured 316L Stainless Steel

Data associated with this record includes final report, open circuit potential data (raw files to generate potential vs. time curves), and profilometry data (surface roughness measurements). The open circuit potential of cold-rolled and additively manufactured (AM) 316L stainless steel was measured. The AM parts underwent a variety of post-processing procedures including grinding and polishing, heat treatment, and a novel sensitization and etching process (used to remove support material). Microstructures and surface roughness of each specimen were evaluated, and specimens also underwent testing in an x-ray diffractometer. The as-printed specimens had the best corrosion resistance and the heat-treated specimens had the worst.
