During isothermal pearlitic transformation of high carbon austenite, the formation of proeutectoid phases precedes that of pearlite. Widmanstatten cementite is the major proeutectoid phase that forms at all temperatures. Within this constituent the precipitation of epsilon-Cu always occurs, together with the formation of stabilized coarse austenite entrapments. Within pearlitic cementite interphase precipitation of epsilon-Cu occurs at all transformation temperatures, while within pearlitic ferrite a banded interphase precipitation of epsilon-Cu occurs only at temperatures close to the eutectoid point. As the temperature of the isothermal pearlitic transformation is lowered the formation of non-partitioned pearlitic ferrite is possible and epsilon-Cu precipitation only forms within this ferrite as a result of ageing occurring during prolonged isothermal holding. It was concluded that interphase precipitation of epsilon-Cu always occurred on the migrating austenite/cementite interphase boundaries, but epsilon-Cu interphase precipitation occurred on the migrating austenite/ferrite boundaries only at temperatures close to the eutectoid point.
