This Special Issue of Materials entitled "Corrosion Resistance and Surface Treatment of Stainless Steels" will concern the broadly understood surface treatment of stainless steel in order to increase its mechanical properties with unchanged or improved corrosion resistance. Glow discharge processes such as low-temperature nitriding and oxynitriding make it possible to achieve these goals, just like hybrid treatments combining, for example, PVD or CVD processes with diffusion processes, ensuring the formation of surface layers with good adhesion to the steel substrate. This Special Issue will also publish articles on other surface treatments that will ensure the achievement of the required goals. The publications focusing on the influence of a specific microstructure of the surface layers formed in a specific treatment on the properties of stainless steel, in particular on its corrosion resistance determined by polarization and impedance methods, will be preferred. Research on the topography and surface roughness as well as the chemical and phase composition of the surface layer should provide information on the mechanism of increasing the corrosion resistance of stainless steel.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
