The influence of solution annealing on microstructure and mechanical properties heat-resistant cast Steel HK30 modified by Niobium
Keywords:heat-resistant cast steel, solution annealing, mechanical properties, carbide
In this paper, the room temperature mechanical properties, as well as the microstructure of HK 30 Nb steel, were tested in the initial as-cast and solution annealed condition. Results show that tensile properties after the solution annealing have a slightly lower value than as-cast samples. Microstructural analysis of samples after solution annealing showed dissolution of primary carbides present in the initial as-cast condition. The morphology and composition of carbides were changed during a solution annealing. Analysis of microstructure was done by optical microscopy (OM) and scanning electron microscope (SEM), whereas hardness and tensile tests were performed for characterization of mechanical properties.
