Metallurgy Tinplate stock that had been cold reduced 82% by rolling was partially annealed st various temperatures to produce the full strength spectrum that could be obtained from a continuous annealing line. The mechanical properties of this mat.erial were compared to those of material that had'bèen .cold rolled by various amounts to equivalent strengths. It was found that the ductility of partia11y annealed material was substantially superior to that of cold-rolled material at virtually a11

This difference in ductility between the· two materials at equal strengths has been yisually correlated, by a series of photomicrographs, to a difference in microstructure. Microstructural recovery and recrystallization are responsible for the increased duc tilit y of partia11y annealed material over that coldl""o11ed.
