A new surface treatment system (IH-FPPsystem) combined with an induction heating and a fine particle peening machine were developed. FPP treatments were carried out on structural steel discs by using Cr shot particle at room temperature, 400°C, 600°C and 900°C. After characterizing the surfaces by SEM, EDX and XRD, corrosion tests were performed by a three electrode method using a computer driven potentiostat. No noticeable differences were observed on the specimen treated at RT, 400°C and 600°C. In the case of the specimen treated at 900°C, however, higher corrosion resistance which is almost the same as FPP treated stainless steel (SUS316L) was observed. This was because Cr diffused layer covered with relatively smooth oxidized surface prevented a corrosion reaction in 3%NaCl environment.
