The possibility of producing anticorrosion and wear resistant cladding from stainless steel onto tool and carbon steels by means of melting in high energy density light flux is demonstrated. Experiments are conducted in an installation with two arc xenon lamps of 10 kW power of each. Metallographic investigation of the interface shows the existence of high quality metallic bond between the clad and base material. The dilution of Ni and Cr is shown to depend on the melting time. A strong correlation between microstructure of produced cladding and treatment parameters - flux density and exposure time - is revealed.
