Intensive refinement of microstructure, breaking of pearlitic areas and redistribution of spheroidized carbides was achieved only when higher deformation of [phi] = 2.1 was applied in two deformation steps just before air cooling.
A new low temperature thermo-mechanical processing strategy was proposed for a low carbon structural steel RSt37-2, which enables fine microstructures to be obtained with spheroidized carbides in a much shorter time than conventional heat treatment.
A significant difference in the quantity of spheroidized carbides existed between the two groups.
The resulted microstructure presented partially spheroidized carbides and a certain quantity of free ferrite.
