HyperForm product showing enhanced formability
Downgauging potential versus HSLA
23%
Compared to standard products used in complex structural car components, HyperForm steel has the potential to greatly reduce component weight. Our case study shows up to 23% downgauging potential without the loss of crash performance.
Downgauging potential versus DP800
10%
To analyse the crash performance properties of DP800-GI HyperForm, drop weight testing with closed top hat structures was carried out to check the fracture behaviour. The performance was similar to standard DP800 with 10% increase in energy absorption.
Higher elongation levels
4%
HyperForm grades offer on average 4% higher elongation (A80) and higher n-values than their normal DP-equivalents at the same strength level.
