  • Automotive - Direct-rolled - High-strength steel

    Ymagine® comes in five high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) grades offering either weight savings or enhanced product strength without weight penalties.

    Ymagine delivers excellent workability, tight tolerances and consistent quality that ensures repeatable and reliable performance.

    • HSLA grades for enhanced product strength

      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.

    • CR high-strength steels – strong, lightweighting

      We offer a range of steels for automotive applications requiring high strength without the weight penalty.

      The range compromises microalloyed, rephosphorised and carbon manganese high-strength steels in cold-rolled uncoated condition. Ideal for strong, thin gauge products.

    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-UC offers excellent bendability. 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.
