Micro-alloyed grades

Micro-alloyed grades have high-strength levels through precipitation and grain refinement hardening. Careful use of alloying elements ensures high mechanical resistance and good weldability. Micro alloyed grades are suited to pressed or stamped parts that require high strength and good formability eg. in seating or body in white structural parts.

Tata Steel supplies high-strength micro-alloyed (HSLA) steel which complies with European standard EN 10268:2006+A1:2013 and to VDA 239-100.

Bake-hardening grades

Bake hardening steel gains extra strength after going through an automotive paint oven. The benefit of this is a product with relatively good formability, combined with a higher strength final part.

Carbon manganese grades                                                                             

Our carbon manganese product combines high strength with excellent formability for the most difficult cold forming applications.
