Mechanical properties

The available grades have the following mechanical properties. These are measured longitudinal to the rolling direction.
Property range is indicated according to VDA 239-100, but properties meet equivalent EN 10346 specifications also.

  Grade CR DP600
Coating type   GI/GA/ZM
Yield strength Rp0,2 N/mm2 330 - 430
Min. BH2 N/mm2 30
Tensile strength Rm N/mm2 590 - 700
Elongation % 20
Min. r-value   -
Min. n-value   0.14
For galvannealed grades (ZF) the minimum elongation before fracture is lowered by 2%.
Elongation after fracture A uses test piece length L0 = 80 mm.
