Résumé : 

The welding of a duplex stainless steel SAF 2205 DSS (UNS 31803) and high strength low alloy steel API X52by shielded metal arc welding process was conducted using two different filler metals, the duplex E2209 and austeniticE309 grade. The microstructures of the dissimilar metal joints have been investigated by optical microscopy, scanningelectron microscopy, energy-dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) and X-ray diffraction. EDS analysis at the interface X52 weldmetal showed an evident gradient variation of Cr and Ni between boundaries of fusion and type II, where the highesthardness value was recorded. Tensile strength and toughness values of the weld metal produced by E309 electrode areslightly higher than those of the weld metal produced by E2209 electrode. Potentiodynamic polarization tests of differentregions of the welded joints evaluated in 3.5% NaCl solution exhibit a high corrosion resistance of both weld metals.
