Surface carburizing of products gives rather multiplex structure: at the very surface the hypereutectoid structure composes from pearlite and different amount of surplus carbides dependent on the degree of carbon saturation; next we have eutectoid structure of pearlite and lastly -hypoeutectoid ferrite/pearlite structure with rising amount of ferrite till the structure reaches the phase composition of the core.
