Cold-rolled steel strip

Outstanding surface quality, excellent cold formability and high uniformity of mechanical properties are characteristic of this material.

Portfolio

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.

A broad product portfolio is supplemented by highly innovative additional treatments and special products developed specifically for industry requirements.

A wooden fire door?

Yes! Available in a very large number of different colors, colofer® is available in many different designs that appear deceptively genuine, including stainless steel, wood or carbon. A special 3D feel makes our wood surfaces hard to differentiate from authentic wood surfaces. A broad portfolio of additional steel products and efficiency-enhancing treatments is also available.

The use of colofer® instead of powder-coated components saves costs!

colofer® is the brand name for pre-coated steel strip made by voestalpine. You can significantly reduce your costs and increase efficiency by switching from powder-coated components to colofer® CASING. colofer® CASING is characterized by particularly high scratch resistance and can be processed as a precoated product without the use of any protective film. With the help of the colofer® color service, the desired color shade can be easily reproduced and, thanks to the Steel Service Center, the product can be supplied in coils, cut sheets or slit strip.

Precoated steel strip for lighting

colofer®, the precoated steel strip made by voestalpine, can be formed easily and, depending on customer requirements, can be coated on one side (top side only) or on both sides (top and bottom side) with a coating specially developed for the lighting industry. Up to 95 gloss units and an epsilon value of ≥ 85 can be achieved. With the help of the colofer® color service, the desired color shade can be easily reproduced and, thanks to the Steel Service Center, the product can be supplied in coils, cut sheets or slit strip.

Almost invisible and yet so effective

multiface® is a multifunctional, nearly invisible protective coating with excellent anti-fingerprint properties. The coating provides excellent corrosion protection during transport and storage and very good forming properties without having to employ any additional lubricants. Components coated with multiface® can be painted or adhesive-bonded without any additional conditioning and can be processed immediately. The surface features very good adhesive properties.

Are you familiar with corrender as a powerful alternative?

By adding magnesium (~1.5% by weight) and aluminum (~2.5% by weight) to the zinc strip, a high-performance protective layer is created which, with the same layer of the metallic protective layer, provides outstanding corrosion protection and excellent workability as compared to conventionally galvanized steel strip.

Heating Ventilating & Air Conditioning

The outstanding product properties of colofer®, corrender, direct-e® and multiface® offer the best possible conditions for efficient solutions in ventilation and air conditioning units. High resistance to weathering and corrosion, uncomplicated formability, simplified further processing and the choice of different colors and surface designs with nature-friendly manufacturing processes and proven voestalpine service offer ideal conditions for new impetus in the industry.
