A high C high Si bainitic steel was continuously cooled from the austenitization temperature and the resulting microstructure observed in a high-resolution transmission electron microscope (HRTEM). It was observed that several alloy carbides precipitated from austenite during cooling, these carbides affect the bainitic microstructure and are thought to substantially improve the steel’s abrasive wear resistance.
