    Hot Rolled Strip Steel

    Tata Steel’s high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) grades offer formability and strength for demanding applications.

    The range includes Ympress® with grades that exceed the Euronorm, resulting in stronger and lighter products with increased yield and simplified processing. Our Ympress Laser range was developed specifically for fast and efficient laser-cutting.  The resulting clean-cut edges mean end products require less finishing.

    • Ympress® for weight savings and component strength

      Ympress® is Tata Steel’s hot-rolled HSLA product. It is highly formable and delivers weight savings and increased component strength. The result is lighter, stronger, more consistent products.

      Ympress® adds value to automotive, lifting and excavating and shipbuilding applications, among others.

    Overview

    Our high-strength steel grades have been developed to meet a wide variety of applications. The consistent quality of these steels means they can be relied on to deliver benefits for your end-products and processes.

    The high yield strength of Ympress delivers weight savings and increased component strength. This can help you create lighter, stronger products and increase yield through down-gauging. Consistent properties and tight control of material thickness allow trouble-free, repeatable processing. Ympress can be easily welded and galvanised. Its high surface quality can lead to fewer processing steps.

    The consistent quality of Ympress Laser products ensures fast, reliable automated processing. A well-adhered oxide layer and consistent chemical contents deliver a clean-cut edge – even at high cutting speeds. This allows simple release of cut parts and reduces post-cut work. Suitable also for conventional cutting methods, Ympress Laser comes will all the advantages of the Ympress product family. To protect the integrity of this product, Ympress Laser is available only through a dedicated supply route. A full customers support package is available.

    Overview

    Overview

    Our high-strength steel grades have been developed to meet a wide variety of applications. The consistent quality of these steels means they can be relied on to deliver benefits for your end-products and processes.

    The high yield strength of Ympress delivers weight savings and increased component strength. This can help you create lighter, stronger products and increase yield through down-gauging. Consistent properties and tight control of material thickness allow trouble-free, repeatable processing. Ympress can be easily welded and galvanised. Its high surface quality can lead to fewer processing steps.

    The consistent quality of Ympress Laser products ensures fast, reliable automated processing. A well-adhered oxide layer and consistent chemical contents deliver a clean-cut edge – even at high cutting speeds. This allows simple release of cut parts and reduces post-cut work. Suitable also for conventional cutting methods, Ympress Laser comes will all the advantages of the Ympress product family. To protect the integrity of this product, Ympress Laser is available only through a dedicated supply route. A full customers support package is available.
