Outstanding surface quality, excellent cold formability and high uniformity of mechanical properties are characteristic of this material.
The comprehensive steel grade program makes cold-rolled steel strip a genuine all-rounder. These materials are used in applications ranging from simple sections to complex deep-drawn parts. Cold-rolled steel strip is used in the household appliance industry in washing machines, dishwashers, tumble dryers, refrigerators, ranges and hot water tanks. Cold-rolled steels are also used in the radiator industry, the automotive industry (car body parts with low corrosion stress), the packaging industry and the tube and section industry.
Development continues unabated in this area, and high-performance cold-rolled steels made by voestalpine have become an alternative to OC annealed steels used in numerous applications in the household appliance and sanitation industries.
