Spheroidization annealing process was carried out on 75Cr1 steel after cold rolling. Using TEM, SEM and image analysis software Image-Pro Plus 6.0, the effects of cold rolling and spheroidization processes on microstructure and mechanical properties were analyzed. The result shows that the cold rolling leads to fragmentation of the cementite and formation of the defects, which induces faster lamellae break-up and accelerates the annealing process. With the increase of isothermal temperature and holding time, the dimension of the spheroidized carbides increase as driven by Ostwald ripening mechanism, whereas the hardness of the steel decreases. The prior cold rolling before annealing process causes the yield strength improve slightly, however shows little effect on the cold formability. The optimum heat treatment process is, holding the samples at 705oC for 6 hours with cold deformation ratio (ε) of 0.6.
