TRIP steel annealed at 775°C for 5 mins and then hold at 400°C for 150s for austenite stabilizatio
The steel microstructure reveals clearly the retained austenite as white, martensite as straw-coloured constituents, bainite can be identified with needle-shaped austenites (there is no carbide present due to the addition of Si). Many martensite-austenite constituents can be found in the microstructure which is revealed because of the tint etching. This is not possible with any other reported ethants/etching techniques for TRIP steels. The microstructure does not show presence of any carbides.
