Overview

Our high-strength steel grades have been developed to meet a wide variety of applications. The consistent quality of these steels means they can be relied on to deliver benefits for your end-products and processes.

The high yield strength of Ympress delivers weight savings and increased component strength. This can help you create lighter, stronger products and increase yield through down-gauging. Consistent properties and tight control of material thickness allow trouble-free, repeatable processing. Ympress can be easily welded and galvanised. Its high surface quality can lead to fewer processing steps.
