Hot-rolled product families
Hot-rolled steel for cold forming is used for bending and deep drawing.
Tata Steel's forming grades offer consistency for reliable processing and low carbon content for excellent welding performance.
The optimised chemistry of Tata Steel grade DD14+ offers enhanced formability for complex components. DD13WR is particularly suitable for use in wheel rims because of its low aluminium content and controlled Mn:Si ratio. The low carbon content gives DD13WR excellent welding performance.
Tata Steel’s hot-rolled 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.
The guaranteed strength and good weldability of our hot-rolled structural steel help ensure ease of processing and reliable end-product performance.
As with all our hot-rolled steel products, our structural steel is manufactured under tight controls – for consistent quality that you can depend on.
Durbar® is the leading brand of hot-rolled structural steel floor plate, made in the UK for over 50 years – only by Tata Steel. The pattern of diamond studs on genuine Durbar is on average 23% deeper than generic checker plates, with 10% more studs providing outstanding slip resistance.
Tata Steel offers a choice of hot-rolled heat-treatable steels
Heat-treatable steels offer advantages across many applications. We exercise stringent control over chemical composition and production processes, resulting in a robust, consistent and reliable quality you can depend on.
The chemical composition of our boron manganese steel family makes it suitable for forming complex shapes. After a quench and temper step at the customer, the end product will gain its final hardness.
Efficient and reliable abrasion resistant steel sheet withstands harsh wear and tear whilst maintaining lasting quality – even in the most demanding environments.
Tata Steel's Valast wear plate is available in extra-wide strip dimensions, offers consistent flatness and world‑class surface quality. Valast 450 is brought to you through a robust local supply chain offering reduced lead times and customised sheet lengths.
