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 DP1000LY
Coating type   GI
Yield strength Rp0,2 N/mm2 590 - 740
Min. BH2 N/mm2 30
Tensile strength Rm N/mm2 980 - 1130
Elongation % 10
Min. r-value   -
Min. n-value   -
For galvannealed grades (ZF) the minimum elongation before fracture is lowered by 2%.
Elongation after fracture A uses test piece length L0 = 80 mm.
