Abstract

In this study, the precipitation and precipitation hardening behavior of a 0.3%V and 2%Cu bearing middle carbon steel has been investigated in comparison with that of a 0.3%V bearing steel and a 2%Cu bearing steel. The precipitation treatment was carried out isothermally at 600°C.The amount of the precipitation hardening of the 0.3%V and 2%Cu bearing steel is nearly equal to the sum of the precipitation hardening of the 0.3%V bearing steel and the 2%Cu bearing steel In the 0.3%V bearing steel, precipitates were observed in rows, which indicates the occurrence of the interphase precipitation while precipitates observed in the 2%Cu bearing steel were randomly dispersed. In the V and Cu bearing steel, randomly dispersed precipitates were not observed where there were aligned precipitates. In the paper, the different precipitation behavior of the three steels is discussed.
