Aiming to improve the formability of a HSAS Docol 1500 Bor, hot processing maps were obtained based on Prasad, Babu and Murty instability criteria. The hot processing maps based on the above instability criteria are similar and the explanation of its similarity is given. Recrystallization and misorientation in typical quenched specimens were observed by using SEM with a EBSD system. It was found that the fraction values of HAGBs in quenched martensite are all below 0.4 under experimental conditions. Flow location bands occurs at lower deformation temperatures and higher strain rates. The textures in martensite mainly include 110//ND and 110//RD components. Based on N-W OR, the textures in deformed austenite are mostly 111//ND and 112//RD components. Prasad and Babu instability criteria are more conservative than Murty instability criterion in obtaining the processing maps of the tested steel. To reduce the anisotropy of quenched workpieces because of the textures at room temperature, the quenching temperature in the stamping process of the tested steel should be lower.
