Abstract

Today, stainless steel is widely used in automotive industry due to its high impact resistance, corrosion resistance and light weight. This paper present the research carried out to study the differences between microstructure and mechanical properties of 409 and 308 stainless steel sheets, each joints by gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW). For each of weldments, detailed analysis was conducted on the chemical composition, microstructure characteristics and mechanical properties of base metal (BM), heat affected zone (HAZ) and fusion zone (FZ). Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and optical microscopy were used to analyze microstructural changes and mechanical properties, including microhardness and tensile test. This study can be a practical guide in the selection of other materials in order to determine the important to use in structural automotive industry.
