Abstract: Lead patenting process is the most efficient way to transform hot rolled steel wire rod of different chemical composition into fine pearlitic steel. However, the optimization of various parameters of lead patenting process is critical to achieve high efficiency of transformation process in mass production of hypereutectoid steel wires. The experiment was conducted to find out the optimum range of austenitic temperature, lead bath temperature and phase transformation time. The effect of carbon percentage, size of steel wire rod and drawn strain prior-topatenting on mechanical properties are also observed through various experiments and evaluated.
