  • Cold-rolled - Steel for forming (US Standard units)

    Cold-rolled steel for cold forming and deep drawing is available in a range of grades.

    Each grade is designed for particular applications – allowing you to pick the best steel for your product.

     

    • Vitrostaal steel for enamelling

      Vitrostaal  cold-rolled steel for enamelling provides strong coating adhesion and reliable deep drawing. Vitrostaal LD grades provide improved resistance to carbon boiling.

      Applications include barbecues, bathroom furniture, heat-exchange panels, photovoltaic solar panels, white boards and wall panels.

    • 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.

    Overview

    Cold-rolled steel for cold forming and deep drawing is available in a range of grades. Each grade is designed for particular applications – allowing you to pick the best steel for your product. Our forming steel is available in a choice of widths up to 81 inches and thicknesses up to 0.122 inch. This provides opportunities for cutting waste and maximising yield.

    These products are made using one of two process routes:

    • continuous annealing (CA)
    • batch annealing (BA)

    Applications

    • Automotive components and body panels
    • Components for building
    • Domestic appliances
    • Electrical goods
    • Furniture
    • Radiators
    • Tubes

     

    Properties

     

    Mechanical properties

    Cold-rolled forming steels have the following ranges of mechanical properties (nonmandatory). They are provided to assist the purchaser in specifying a suitable steel for a given application. The mechanical properties are measured longitudinal to the rolling direction.
