The uniformity of the mechanical properties, especially elongation and impact toughness, were compared between steel A, which was deoxidized with Ti-Zr, and steel B, which was deoxidized with Al. Microstructural observations, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction analyses were conducted using an optical microscope, a scanning electron microscope and a transmission electron microscope, respectively. Results showed that sub-micron and nano-sized complex oxides were obtained by the combined deoxidation of Ti-Zr. The stability of the mechanical properties of steel A was better than that of steel B. The elongation and impact toughness of steel A were enhanced relative to those of steel B. This was attributed to spheroidization and the dispersed distribution of MnS inclusions in the matrix of steel A.
