    Hot Rolled Strip Steel

    Hot-rolled steel for cold forming is used for bending and deep drawing.

    Hot-rolled steel for cold forming is used for bending and deep drawing in a wide range of applications. The consistent quality of Tata Steel's forming grades ensures reliable processing.  All of our forming grades have a low carbon content for excellent welding performance.

    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

    Hot-rolled steel for cold forming is used for bending and deep drawing in a wide range of applications. The consistent quality of Tata Steel's forming grades ensures reliable processing.  All of our forming grades have a low carbon content for excellent welding performance.

    DS type B WR is particularly suitable for use in wheel rims because of its low aluminum content and controlled Mn:Si ratio. The low carbon content gives DS type B WR excellent welding performance.

    Applications

    • Automotive components
    • Domestic appliance components
    • Furniture
    • Switch gear panels
    • Tubes and sections
    • Wheel Rims
