Effect of Processing Parameters on Properties and Microstructures of Warm-Rolled Interstitial-Free (IF) Steel Sheets
In order to simplify production processes and to lower production cost of thicker coldrolled IF steel sheets for deep drawing applications, a new warm-rolled IF steel sheet was developed in our lab through hot-rolling in high-temperature ferrite range. In this paper, effect of processing parameters on properties, microstructures and precipitate morphology of warm-rolled IF steel sheets was investigated. It is found that firstly, good deep drawing properties and favorable textures were achieved as steels were warm-rolled in good lubricant condition. Secondly, most precipitates in steels were TiS, TiC, TiN and Ti4C2S2.
