Coated Advanced High Strength Steel Coil
Steelmakers have developed steel grades that are both stronger and more formable. These special steel chemistries let you use heating and cooling to vary the steel properties as you make parts from them. The higher strength lets you use thinner steels. Use coated advanced high strength steel coils and grades when you want parts with more complex shapes that weigh less.
Why Use AHSS?
- Recommended for: to make parts with more complex shapes that weigh less
- Cost: High
Strength, Yield Strength ksi(MPa), Tensile Strength ksi(MPa): Strongest, 65-140 (450-980)
Formability: % Elongation: Better, Varies depending on strength level and specification (ASTM, SAE or Auto)
- For better formability consider Deep Drawing Steel
Corrosion Resistance: Very Good
- For better corrosion resistance, consider Stainless Steel
