The eutectoid mixture of α+Fe3C is known as ________
⇒ Eutectoid refers to a homogeneous solid mixture that forms from cooling two or more melted metals to a certain temperature.
⇒ The eutectoid mixture of (α+Fe3C) ferrite (α) and cementite (Fe3C) as alternate lamellae is known as pearlite.
⇒ Pearlite is a mixture of ferrite and cementite forming distinct layers or bands in slowly cooled carbon steels.
⇒ Pearlite is an iron alloy that contains around 88% ferrite and 12% cementite. Pearlite is known for being tough and it is used in a variety of applications, including cutting tools.
