Abstract: In the current work, fully pearlitic microstructure was initially developed in a medium carbon steel by isothermal holding at different temperatures. Subsequently, these samples were drawn in laboratory scale wire-drawing machine without any intermediate heat treatment. Microstructures and mechanical properties of as-heat-treated and heat-treated plus drawn samples were characterised. The results were also compared with some commercially produced steel. It was found that the new steel can offer a very good wire drawing behaviour. The steel possesses a good combination of strength and ductility along with a high-value torsion, bending and reverse bending properties after drawn condition as well. © 2019, © 2019 Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.
