AHSS (CP800-1000 UC/GI and DP800-1000 UC/GI)
For safety impact parts in truck cabins our CP800-1000 UC/GI and DP800-1000 UC/GI) combine high strength with formability needed to deal with emergency impact, thus reducing the stress of the impact by absorbing energy.
Serica and MagiZinc Auto (DX54-57, BH)
Tata Steel offers a full range of full finish galvanised products (up to 2000mm width), suitable for great looking outer parts of your truck. Our top product Serica is designed with extra low waviness, which improves the reflection of light and makes outer parts look even better.
Our MagiZinc products use a zinc magnesium coating offering better corrosion resistance at similar coating thickness. MagiZinc is available for structural parts and for outer panels.
Ympress (S355MC-S700MC) and XPF (XFP800-XPF1000)
Our high-strength steel grades are used in the chassis of most large trailer and truck producers in Europe and allow for efficient processing (welding, cutting and profiling) due to their lean chemistries. Our case study below demonstrates how Ympress S700MC is used to produce the lightest trailers in Europe.
XPF800-1000 is suitable for high strength parts with complex shapes (with punched holes) due to the high HEC values and good elongation properties, like wheel suspension parts.
Valast (Valast 450)
Transporting stones, cement and other abrasive material, requires extremely tough materials, that are designed to last. Our Valast 450 is an abrasion resistant material that allows for lightweighting in kipper trailers and rail wagons. Due to the low CEV value it is easy to process and weld and the width up to 2050mm allows to optimise designs and minimise the numbers of welds required.
Tubular products (Hybox TT S355-700MH and boron manganese grades)
Our Hybox TT (S355-700MH) products are used in many transportation vehicles, but we are most proud of the role it plays as underrun protection tubes, avoiding cars sliping under trucks or trailers in case of a collision.
Our boron manganese tubes help to lightweight driveshafts, while withstanding the fatigue demands coming from the constant motion of transport vehicles.
For trailer axles we offer the hot formed Celsius (355-460NH) products.
This colour coated steel is approved for food transportation in cooling trailers. For the outer panels a protective layer is applied to protect against stones chippings.
Buses and city trucks are changing towards becoming electric at a very fast rate. Our Hilumin material offers specially coated material used in the battery packages of cars, trucks and buses.
Shipbuilding (Grade A, B)
We offer DNV-GL and Lloyds certified shipbuilding grades up to 2050mm width, which are available with double certificates for structural steel grades in order to remove the need to keep double stock.
For box trailers and double deck trailers Coretinium offers steel for side walls and floor dividers. Coretinium consists of two colour coated sheets glued together with a honeycomb structure, which creates strong, lightweight panels with great stiffness.
