  • Hot-rolled -Tenform® high-strength low-alloy steel

    Tenform is Tata Steel’s hot-rolled HSLA product produced in the UK. It exceeds the Euronorm formability requirements so you can depend on it for even the most demanding operations.

    Heat-treatable steel

    Tata Steel offers a choice of hot-rolled heat-treatable steel. Its chemical composition and the production processes we employ ensure robust, consistent products. 

    Our case-hardening steel is suitable for wear-resistant components that must bear extreme fatigue stress. Our high-carbon grades supplied in the ‘as-rolled’ untreated condition can be processed to meet specific requirements.

    Overview

    Tenform® is available in a range of strengths, forming capabilities and steel characteristics to meet your specific requirements.The high yield strengths of Tenform® allow you to increase the strength of a finished component or reduce the steel thickness – or both. It means stronger, lighter products that are safer under load. It also provides excellent opportunities for yield maximisation. The reliable strength and formability of Tenform® deliver additional benefits. These include scope for further design and process optimisation. For example, components can be manufactured efficiently by press forming rather than welding.
