The sequence of eutectoid microstructures, obtained by lowering the temperature of the isothermal transformation, was studied in synthetic steel with 4.12 mass pct Cr 0.88 mass pct C. The results were compared with observations on plain carbon steels with 1.65 and 1.67 mass pct C. In both cases, the main features can be explained as an effect of a lowered temperature on the increasing supersaturation of cementite in austenite and an even stronger effect on that of ferrite. One distinction was a continuous change in the pearlite structure toward a more acicular structure. This structure is named acicular pearlite.
