Texture and Evolution of Recrystallization in Low Carbon Steel Wire
The effect of cold wire drawing on texture of industrial low carbon steel wire was investigated. On the other hand, the mechanism of recrystallization of drawn-wire was studied during different isothermal annealing below 723 °C. The structural evolution of wire was studied by optical microscopy, SEM, EBSD and X-Ray diffraction. From this study, a fiber texture was observed in deformed wire. However, a recrystallization reaction occurs after critical temperature during annealing.
