  • Patent number: 9721706
    Abstract: A value of a parameter Q represented by “Q=([Ti]/48+[V]/51+[Zr]/91+[Nb]/93)/([C]/12)” is not less than 0.9 nor more than 1.1, when contents of Ti, V, Zr, Nb, and C (mass %) are represented as [Ti], [V], [Zr], [Nb], and [C] respectively. A matrix of a metal structure is a ferrite phase, and the metal structure does not contain a non-recrystallized structure. An average grain size of ferrite grains constituting the ferrite phase is not less than 30 ?m nor more than 200 ?m. A precipitate containing at least one selected from the group consisting of Ti, V, Zr, and Nb exists with a density of 1 particle/?m3 or more in the ferrite grain. An average grain size of the precipitate is not less than 0.002 ?m nor more than 0.2 ?m.

  • Publication number: 20110039120
    Abstract: An inorganic-organic composite film is formed by coating a application liquid containing an inorganic component and an organic resin on a surface of a steel sheet, and baking the application liquid on the surface of the steel sheet. The application liquid contains phosphate as the inorganic component, and further contains an inorganic powder having a BET specific surface area of 10 m2/g or more and exhibiting a particle size distribution with a 50% cumulative particle size of 5 ?m or less and with a 90% cumulative particle size of 15 ?m or less when measured by a laser diffraction particle size analyzer, the powder being contained at a ratio of no less than 1 mass %, nor more than 50 mass % with respect to a solid content of the phosphate.
