Ymagine

High-strength steel

The Ymagine® range is available in five high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) grades that are easy to process.

H500-UC, for example, offers excellent bendability in strong, lightweight automotive components in gauges and gauge tolerances that are hard to produce in hot strip mills.
Ymagine delivers excellent workability, tight tolerances and consistent quality that ensures repeatable and reliable performance.

Overview

Ymagine® HSLA grades

Ymagine also comes in five high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) grades offering either weight savings or enhanced product strength without weight penalties. The consistent quality of this direct-rolled steel ensures repeatable and reliable performance.

Ymagine H500 offers excellent formability. It has been developed to meet the growing demand for strong but lightweight automotive components in gauges that are difficult to produce by conventional hot strip mills.
