Abstract: The microstructure at the interface between AISI 321 stainless steel and molten aluminum was investigated which occurs during the process of hot-dip aluminizing. Microstructural characterization was carried out by scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction. The study revealed the formation of metastable FeAlm and multiple twinned Al13Fe4 phases at the interface between steel and aluminum. Multiple twinned Al13Fe4 phase exhibits pseudo tenfold electron diffraction pattern. Another metastable phase Al3(NiFe) with an orthorhombic structure was formed as one of the eutectic phase mixture in the solidified aluminum topcoat. The Al3(NiFe) phase in the eutectic shares crystallographic orientation relationship with the Al matrix. Metastable intermetallic phases are being reported for the first time during hot-dip aluminizing. 2018 Elsevier B.V.
