Mechanical Properties and Microstructures of Ferritic-Rolled High-Strength Interstitial-Free (IF) Steel Sheets
High-strength IF steel sheet has increasingly attracted more attention of steelmakers in recent years as it has the potential to lighten the weight of automobiles and save energy and lower the production cost. In this paper, the effect of processing parameters on microstructures and mechanical properties especially deep drawability of ferritic-rolled P-added high strength Ti-stabilized IF steels were investigated and the precipitates in the steels were also analyzed. The results show that lubricant condition has great influence on the r-value and deep drawability of high-strength IF steels. And with the decrease of rolling temperature in ferrite region, the deep drawability of steels is improved.
