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.

Steel grades

  • Mild steels
  • Structural steels
  • Phosphorus-alloyed steels
  • Micro-alloyed steels
  • Bake-hardening steels
  • High-strength IF steels
  • Dual-phase steels
  • Complex-phase steels
  • TRIP steels

Cold-rolled steel strip

  • Excellent surface quality 
  • Excellent cold formability 
  • Highly uniform mechanical properties 
  • Narrow thickness tolerances thanks to modern production systems

Cold-rolled enamelable steels

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.

Hot-rolled steel strip 

voestalpine builds on partnerships and highest quality claims:

  • Development of customer-specific special grades based on individual requirements
  • High uniformity of mechanical and chemical properties
  • Narrowest tolerances guaranteed 
  • Consistently high product quality based on precise rolling process in which temperature and forming are precisely matched
  • Material and processing expertise from a single source

Mild, unalloyed steels for cold forming

These steels are generally delivered in accordance with EN 10111. They are used in applications in which formability is more important than strength.

Structural steels

These steels are included in EN 10025. One of their fields of application is in machinery. The steels are characterized by minimum yield strength, a margin for tensile strength and minimum fracture elongation. They are used for light drawing stress, forming and bending.

alform® steels

alform® is a brand name in the voestalpine Steel Division and stands for hot-rolled fine-grained steel with best cold-forming properties and excellent weldability. alform® steels are available in various grades and strength classes. Whether thermomechanically or normalized rolled, as hot-rolled strip or heavy plate, in coils, slit strip or cut sheets, alform® is an indispensable material in mechanical engineering, automotive design and in the processing Industry.

durostat® steels

durostat® grades are wear-resistant steels that feature high hardness achieved through accelerated cooling directly from the rolling heat. They are characterized by a high degree of wear resistance and are especially suited to applications with high mechanical stress and high levels of abrasion.

Case-hardening and heat-treatable steels

Case-hardening and heat-treatable steels pursuant to DIN EN ISO 683-1 and EN 10084 as well as the voestalpine standard are implemented in direct-processing applications or are used for cold re-rolling. These steels generally undergo heat treatment in order to achieve the desired processing and component properties. They are used in applications that must strike an optimum balance between hardness and toughness.

Pole sheets

Pole sheets are thermomechanically rolled steels with guaranteed magnetic properties. Standard grades are pursuant to Euronorm EN 10265:1995 (corresponding to IEC 404-8-5). Ultra-high-strength special voestalpine grades are also supplied.

Hot-rolled enamelable steels

The narrowest tolerances, high material quality and highly specialized application expertise guarantee products that meet every requirement. Combinations of thick hot-rolled steels and thin cold-rolled steels, for example, are often used in industrial silo designs.
