  • Metallic coated - Steel for forming

    Our forming steels are available in a wide range of grades and corrosion-resistant coatings.

    Each grade is designed for specific applications and comes with a choice of surface quality. Extensive dimensional choice provides opportunities for cutting waste and maximising yield.

    • Metallic coated steel - Magizinc®

      MagiZinc® improves corrosion resistance with half the thickness of conventional zinc coatings, increasing yield, reducing cost and facilitating stronger, lighter products.

      It offers improved automotive corrosion protection and higher process efficiency.

    • High-end aesthetics

      Compared to standard hot-dip galvanised grades, the Serica surface finish reduces the ‘orange peel’ effect commonly visible on painted exposed panels.

      Serica unlocks the potential for high-end aesthetics in serial production vehicles.

    1. If the yield point is not pronounced, the values apply to the 0.2% - proof strength Rp0.2 ; if the yield
       strength is pronounced, the values apply to the lower yield point ReL.
    2. Decreased minimum elongation values apply for product thickness t ≤ 0.50mm (minus 4 units)
       and for 0.50mm ≤ t ≤ 0.70mm (minus 2 units).
    3. This value applies to skin-passed products only (surface qualities B and C).
    4. For t > 1.5mm, the minimum r90 - value reduced by 0.2 applies
    5. For t ≤ 0.70mm, the minimum r90 - value reduced by 0.2 and minimum n90- value reduced by 0.01
       apply.
