RE: Normalized Steel

A S Quilala  


The change occurs in the distribution of carbon in iron-carbon solid solution present: get different proportions of austenite, pearlite and martensite, iron may also change its crystalline form: alpha-iron and gamma-iron from memory.


The alloys change, not the chemistry. Unless heat the steel to a temperature that it instantaneously combusts with oxygen.
