(2017) 6:625–626 Answer for Volume 6, Issue 4 Mystery Micrograph This micrograph corresponds to an industrial hypoeutectic lamellar cast iron (carbon equivalent = 3.9%). It shows a primary austenite particle result of a coarsening process after an isothermal treatment at 1175 C, the solid–liquid region, for 4 days. The structure is preserved at RT by quenching the sample into water. This quenching promotes the martensitic needles inside the austenite particle and the surrounding fine dendritic austenite structures with a ledeburitic matrix (blue and red). The microstructure is etched by Motz’s reagent, picric-based etchant. Metallography, Microstructure, and Analysis Springer Journals
