    Unitol offers one of the broadest ranges of strip products in Europe, converting wide strip coil into precision slit coil, de-coiled sheets, and multi-strand blanks.

    With over 35 years’ experience in the automotive market, major manufacturers, suppliers and subcontractors trust Unitol’s expertise.

    • HSLA for enhanced product strength

      The Ymagine® range is available in five high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA) grades that are easy to process. H500, for example, offers excellent formability in strong, lightweight automotive components in gauges that are hard to produce in hot strip mills.

    • Cold rolled steel: consistent, reliable products

      Our advanced and ultra high-strength cold-rolled steels DP600, DP800, DP1000 and HQ1500 are lightweight and enable design freedom for complex parts.

      Their high yield and ductility ensure shape accuracy and tolerancing, which enable thickness reduction and maintained in-service performance for difficult-to-form parts.
