Abstract

The hot corrosion resistance of the wrought alloy 625 and the alloy 625 GMAW cladding was investigated in the molten salt mixture of 47 PbSO4-23 ZnO-13 Pb3O4-7 PbCl2-x CdO-(10-x) Fe2O3 [x = 5] (wt.%) at 600, 700, and 800 °C, utilizing EIS, OCP, potentiodynamic polarization, weight-loss measurement, SEM/EDX, ICP/AAS, and XRD techniques. At 600 °C, the hot corrosion resistance of the wrought alloy 625 outperformed the alloy 625 weld cladding due to the formation of a (Cr, Ni, O)-rich layer with 2.2 ± 1.3 μm in thickness. Anodic and cathodic reactions on polarized working electrodes were under mass-transfer control.
