Hot-rolled

Steel for forming

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.
