Summary In the present paper an effect of severe plastic deformation (SPD) on the microstructural evolution and properties of a plain C-Mn steel was investigated. The SPD was accomplished by the MaxStrain system which deforms material along two perpendicular axes while the deformation along the third axis is fully constrained. The applied amounts of true strains were 5 and 20 in total. Deformation was conducted at room and 500°C temperatures. Some samples deformed at room temperature were subsequently annealed at 500°C. A microstructural analysis by SEM/EBSD was used for recognition the low- and high-angle grain boundaries. It was found that the collective effect of severe plastic deformation (true strain of 20) and further annealing promotes the formation of high-angle grain boundaries and uniform fine grained microstructure. The refinement of ferrite microstructure results in a significant increase in strength and hardness.
