Spheroidal graphite iron castings are today widely used because of their good mechanical properties. The spheroidal shape of graphite is most often obtained by the addition of magnesium or cerium during the casting process. Spheroidal graphite can be formed at the solid-state by graphitization of cast irons which solidified partly or totally in the metastable system. The purpose of this work is to study the effect of solid-state graphitization treatment on the growth of nodular graphite of a thin wall casting which has a mottled structure at the as-cast state. This cast iron was studied using optical microscopy, scanning and transmission electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy and electron energy loss spectroscopy. Heat treatments ensuring a total and partial graphitization to decompose the cementite formed at the solidification in graphite and austenite were realized. The nodules become more numerous and their size increases according to the time of graphitization. The microstructure after heat treatment is composed of graphite nodules and ferrite. Raman spectroscopy has been used to characterize graphite nodules in as-cast state and in samples having been fully graphitized at various temperatures in the austenite field. The results show no significant difference between Raman spectra recorded on these various samples, suggesting graphite grows with the same mechanism during either solidification or hightemperature (so-called first stage) graphitization. Transmission electron microscopy characterizations show that nodules in the as-cast material presents a multi-fold structure characterized by an inner zone where graphite is misoriented and an outer zone where it is well crystallized. In heat-treated samples, graphite nodules consist of well crystallized sectors radiating from the nucleus. These observations suggest that the misoriented zone appears because of mechanical deformation when the liquid contracts during its solidification. During heat-treatment, this zone disappears by recrystallization. The results of the present work lead to a better understanding of the nodular graphite structure in the solid state and also show that nodular graphite growth mechanism is the same during solidification and solid-state transformation
