Use of the new configuration of finishing group of stands having the block design with divisibility of deformation and with the system of intra-block control of temperature of rolled billets allows to reduce deviation of mechanical properties, to reduce depth of the decarburized layer with its uniform distribution along the perimeter of wire rod surface. Wire rod with diameter 5.5 mm made of high-carbon steel has been used in this work for manufacture of high strength bead wire and steel wire cord. Additional alloying with chromium increases the dispersion of pearlite, while decrease of manganese content leads to lowering of strength properties. It was revealed that lowering of temperature after hot rolling from 1000–1100 оC to 850–930 оC leads to decrease of tensile strength of high-carbon steel that depends on divisibility of deformation and is caused by diminishing of austenite grain size and pearlite dispersity. Transformation of austenite in commercial high-carbon steel (with chemical composition shown in the Table 1) has been examined in laboratorial conditions on the base of combined analysis of dilatograms and microstructural investigations. Additional usage of reducing and sizing block in the finishing part of rolling technological line during production of high-carbon wire rod with consequent thermomechanical treatment (temperature at the laying head was in the range 930 ± 15 оC) allowed to provide rise of metal technological ductility plasticity in wire production.
