This work presents results of investigations using the Mössbauer spectroscopy technique and their interpretation concerning transformation of ϵ to cementite carbides during tempering in relation to the previously conducted dilatometric, microscopic and mechanical investigations. Investigations were performed on 120MnCrMoV8-6-4-2 steel. The influence of the tempering time on nucleation and solubility of ϵ carbides, and on cementite nucleation and growth, was determined. The analysis of phase transformations during various periods of tempering using the Mössbauer spectroscopy technique made possible to reveal fine details connected with the processes.
