An intergranular corrosion study of welded joints of austenitic stainless steels (AISI 304 and 316L) has been addressed. A specific small-scale electrochemical cell (minicell) has been used. Four different weldment zones have been studied. The electrochemical methods applied were the electrochemical potentiokinetic reactivation test and electrochemical potentiokinetic reactivation double loop test. These techniques showed that the HAZ was the most critical zone to intergranular corrosion for both materials. The weld metal was susceptible to interdendritic corrosion and the fusion line showed a mixture of intergranular and interdendritic corrosion. The effect of pre- and post-welding heat treatments for AISI 316L was analyzed. The HAZ was again the most critical zone in every heat treatment condition. The results were correlated to the microstructural features of the materials.
