Fe, C 1.0 (wt%), hypereutectoid alloy

By University of Cambridge DoITPoMS and University of Cambridge Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy Prof T W Clyne


This secondary electron SEM image shows the cementite delineating prior austenite grain boundaries with a thin layer. The amount of proeutectoid phase is very low, with the majority of the area being taken by the pearlite eutectoid. Again each pearlite cell has a different orientation with the ferrite phase being selectively etched.
