Abstract

As one of the important stainless varieties of major steel production, Cr13 stainless steel is used widely in the world. The annealing treatment of the metal is important in the production and processing, and good annealed is helpful to mechanical processing and subsequent heat treatment of steel. The isothermal annealing and fully annealing treatment were carried out in the different types of Cr13 stainless steels respectively, and their structures and mechanical properties were compared in this study. The results show that the structure with the annealing treatment is even and fine. With the increase of carbon content, the hardness of the annealed Cr13 stainless steel increases. Fully annealed Cr13 stainless steel has lower hardness and greater elongation than that isothermal annealed.
