The aim of the paper was to determine the parameters of recrystallization annealing for cold-rolled sheets prepared from steel X60MnAl30-9. Tested steel is characterized with high resistance and ductility but due to the addition of 9%Al it meets the criterion of the so-called “light steel”. Microstructure and properties of metal sheets are mainly dependent on temperature and time of annealing which in continuous processes should be as short as possible. Tests of microstructure and mechanical properties for given parameters enabled the choice of the optimum parameters of the process to achieve the best possible relation of the resistance properties and the plastic properties.
