Effects of precipitation on the recrystallization behavior of two Ti-added extra low carbon sheet steels were compared. The recrystallization temperature of the higher Ti-containing steel is higher than that of the lower Ti-containing steel. Small Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS) technique revealed no additional carbonitrides precipitation during the recrystallization annealing procedure in the low Ti-containing steel. However, in higher Ti-containing steel, new TiC precipitates, with a size range of several nm to several tens of nms, form during the recrystallization annealing process. This dynamic interaction of the precipitation of fine TiC particles with the recovery of dislocations seems the primary source of the retardation of the recrystallization in the higher Ti-containing extra low carbon steel.
