Atmospheric-controlled induction-heating fine particle peening (AIH-FPP) using Cr and Mo shot particles was introduced to improve the electrochemical characteristics of AISI 1045 medium carbon steel in NaCl solution. AIH-FPP can form transferred and diffused layers of shot particles on the surface of carbon steel. The corrosion potential of the AIH-FPP-treated steel was higher than that of the untreated steel in a NaCl environment. Furthermore, a passivation region was observed in the carbon steel treated with AIH-FPP using Cr shot particles after peening with Mo shot particles through the formation of a surface-modified layer with high Cr and Mo concentrations in 20% NaCl solution.
