2Cr13 stainless steel was cladded with Co-based alloy using a high power carbon dioxide laser. The microstructure, wear resistance and corrosion properties of the clad layer were investigated. It is found that the high temperature corrosion behavior and wearing resistant property of the clad layer are 3 and 2.5 times higher than those of the parent metal. At the corrosion condition of molten lead sulphate salt, the clad layer fails by spalling which is caused by intergrannular corrosion within the clad layer. The fine dendritic structure and the oxide help to retard the penetration of the sulphur ion that induces the intergrannular corrosion.
