This paper presents selected laboratory research results concerning the production of high dispersion padding welds that were made from Castolin EnDOtec DO390N P pulverized nanowire on acid resistant 0Hl8N9 steel using laser technology. The analysis of the microstructure showed a high dispersion of the micro- and nano-structure where the phase particles of large volume carbide (MC), M23(BC) boron carbides, and M2B borides are distributed in the fine-grained iron matrix. The study found extensive differentiation of chemical composition in the micro-areas and extensive non-homogeneity of the microstructure due to repeated laser melting of the padding weld layer. Its surface hardness was 68-72 HRC and the cross-sectional microhardness was as high as 990 - ll00 HV0, l.
