Effect of Divorced Eutectoid Transformation Temperature on Behaviour of Cementite Growth in GCr15 Steel
Cementite spheroidization of GCr15 bearing steel includes granulating and growth of cementite. The effects of divorced eutectoid transformation (DET) temperatures on growth of cementite were studied. It was found that the particles of cementite are fine and uniform when DET occurs at 690～720°С, and alloy elements mostly precipitate at different temperatures during cementite growth of GCr15 bearing steel; Cr and Si mostly precipitate in the eutectoid temperature upper limit, while Mn is in the eutectoid temperature lower limit.
