EVOLUTION OF THE MICROSTRUCTURE AND TEXTURE DURING ANNEALING OF A NIOBIUM STABILIZED FERRITIC STAINLESS STEEL
The ferritic stainless steels are materials used in several segments due the excellent combination of mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. The properties of these alloys are strongly dependent on the microstructural characteristics and texture. Thus, knowledge of the microstructure and texture development is essential to optimize the mechanical properties. The aim of this study was to analyze the evolution of recrystallization and texture of a ferritic stainless steel stabilized with niobium, type AISI430. The samples cold rolled to a reduction in thickness of 85% were annealed by applying heating rate of 41.5°C/s. The annealing was interrupted at 780, 830 and 880°C to verify the microstructure and texture changes. The nominal annealing temperature was 880°C and the soaking time was 25s. The technique used to characterize the changes in microstructure and texture was optic microscopy and high resolution Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD). The samples removed at 780, 830 and 880°C were partially recrystallized with the matrix composed of non-recrystallized and recrystallized regions. The recrystallized grains were observed mainly in prior high angle boundaries. The a-fiber was more intense than g-fiber at 780°C and 830°C. On the other hand, at 880°C it was observed a decrease in intensity of a-fiber and an increase g-fiber intensity. These results indicate that the grains of the a-fiber, with low stored energy, are consumed during the process of recrystallization.
