This study was employed to characterize the microstructural spheroidisation and phase transformations of AISI D2 cold-work tool steel at the isothermal temperature during partial remelting method.
Properties of large size cast are dependent of structure metallic base and rate of graphite spheroidisation. Chemical composition is one of the major factor influencing cast iron mechanical properties.
The research into rapid carbide spheroidisation aims to significantly shorten selected heat treatment processes.

Carbide spheroidisation is a significant metallurgical process which contributes to general changes in microstructure during annealing processes (Nam & Bae, 1999).
Current processes leading to carbide spheroidisation rely on diffusion of carbon in a steel heated to a temperature close to or lightly below [A.sub.c1] (Ghosh S., 2010).
In order to explore the impact of introduced strain on carbide spheroidisation, thermomechanical treatment with subsequent conventional furnace annealing was carried out.
