Transverse cracks in continuous cast steel may easily form if the hot ductility of the continuous cast steel is poor at the straightening stage. In this paper, the hot ductility of X70 pipeline steel was studied at various temperature from 600℃ to 1300℃. The results show that the steel has a good hot ductility (RA above 70%) at 800 ~ 1000℃ and 600 ~ 650℃. And the steel exhibits a hot ductility trough (RA below 80%) at 650 ~ 800℃, which is mainly contributed to the austenite–ferrite transformation. For further understanding the low ductility, the fracture surface was examined by scanning electron microscope, and the second phase particles was examined by energy spectrum analysis. The results indicate that the low ductility of the steel is affected by the equiaxed (Fe, Mn)S precipitate as well as austenite transformation at the third brittle zone.
