Origin of ferrite
Examples from the Web for ferrite
Ferrite and cementite, already described in 10, are the final products of the transformation of austenite in slow-cooling.
The iron thus liberated, as the ferrite of this pearlite, changes simultaneously to α-ferrite.
Further, any ferrite liberated at Ar3 changes there from γ to β, and any present at Ar2 changes from β to α.
