Supersaturated solid soluCon– all C atoms are in intersCCal spaces Iron – Iron Carbide A number of mechanical properCes of pearlite are enhanced through increased C% (in form the form of cemenCte). Iron – Iron Carbide Microstructure within the iron- iron carbide compound further influences mechanical properCes. Iron – Iron Carbide Iron – Iron Carbide When martensite is annealed, significant changes in the microstructure and related mechanical properCes are observed. Annealed martensite is referred to as tempered martensite. The tempering temperature plays a central role in establishing speci...
