Surface aspects

Surface quality

?

Surface quality A

Defects that do not influence the formability or the application of surface coatings are permitted. They are defects such as pores, minor scratches, slight indentations, small grooves or slight discolouration.?

Surface quality B

The better side must be free of defects that can spoil the uniform appearance of a high-quality paint or of an electrolytic coating. The other side must at least conform to surface quality A. Not all combinations of thickness and width are available in surface quality B. Please contact us for details.?

Inspected side

As a rule, the upper side of the strip is inspected; on request, the strip can be wound so that the inspected side is the underside.

Preservative oil

The standard oil applied by Tata Steel acts as a protective coating. Other types of oil may be available to meet your requirement.
Tata Steel offers a range of oiling levels from 0.25 - 1.7 g/m2?per side.
Other oiling levels are available on request. Tata Steel is not responsible for the risk of corrosion during storage or shipment if material is ordered in the un-oiled condition.

?

Surface cleanliness

Tata Steel can guarantee improved surface cleanliness on request for batch-annealed products. The cleanliness is tested with a tape test, in which the loss of reflection is measured. The reflection gives an indication of the oil residue on the annealed product. Two levels of loss of reflectivity are available for batch annealed products: a maximum of 20% or a maximum of 30%. Continuously-annealed products typically exhibit a loss of reflection up to around 10%.

Coil welds

For batch-annealed coils, in general, pickling line welds are included. The number of permissible recoiling line welds is determined in consultation with the customer. If welds are permitted, Tata Steel is better able to implement the best coil weight. A recoiling line weld is marked with a single hole in the centre of the strip, close to the weld. On request the identifying hole can be left out. Coils with welds are available on continuously-annealed products – please contact us for details.?You can find details on how to get in touch with us in 'Contact Us' below.

Surface cleanliness

Tata Steel can guarantee improved surface cleanliness on request for batch-annealed products. The cleanliness is tested with a tape test, in which the loss of reflection is measured. The reflection gives an indication of the oil residue on the annealed product. Two levels of loss of reflectivity are available for batch annealed products: a maximum of 20% or a maximum of 30%. Continuously-annealed products typically exhibit a loss of reflection up to around 10%.

Coil welds

For batch-annealed coils, in general, pickling line welds are included. The number of permissible recoiling line welds is determined in consultation with the customer. If welds are permitted, Tata Steel is better able to implement the best coil weight. A recoiling line weld is marked with a single hole in the centre of the strip, close to the weld. On request the identifying hole can be left out. Coils with welds are available on continuously-annealed products – please contact us for details.?You can find details on how to get in touch with us in 'Contact Us' below.

Specification details for DC04

EN-Automotive-Product-Cold-rolled-Forming-All Grades Overview

Overview

Our forming steel is available in a choice of widths up to 2050mm and thicknesses up to 3.1mm. This provides opportunities for cutting waste and maximising yield.These products are made using one of two process routes:

  • continuous annealing (CA)
  • batch annealing (BA)

Applications

Automotive components and body panels

Relationship with standards

Cold-rolled steel for forming complies with European standard EN 10130: 2006 and is available in the grades shown below.

Surface aspects

Surface quality

?

Surface quality A

Defects that do not influence the formability or the application of surface coatings are permitted. They are defects such as pores, minor scratches, slight indentations, small grooves or slight discolouration.?

Surface quality B

The better side must be free of defects that can spoil the uniform appearance of a high-quality paint or of an electrolytic coating. The other side must at least conform to surface quality A. Not all combinations of thickness and width are available in surface quality B. Please contact us for details.?

Inspected side

As a rule, the upper side of the strip is inspected; on request, the strip can be wound so that the inspected side is the underside.

?

Surface texture/roughness

Cold-rolled annealed and skin-passed steel is available in several surface textures. Unless specified otherwise, Tata Steel will supply normal roughness. The table below shows the range of surface textures according to EN 10130:2006.

?

Preservative oil

The standard oil applied by Tata Steel acts as a protective coating. Other types of oil may be available to meet your requirement.
Tata Steel offers a range of oiling levels from 0.25 - 1.7 g/m2?per side.
Other oiling levels are available on request. Tata Steel is not responsible for the risk of corrosion during storage or shipment if material is ordered in the un-oiled condition.

?

Surface cleanliness

Tata Steel can guarantee improved surface cleanliness on request for batch-annealed products. The cleanliness is tested with a tape test, in which the loss of reflection is measured. The reflection gives an indication of the oil residue on the annealed product. Two levels of loss of reflectivity are available for batch annealed products: a maximum of 20% or a maximum of 30%. Continuously-annealed products typically exhibit a loss of reflection up to around 10%.

Coil welds

For batch-annealed coils, in general, pickling line welds are included. The number of permissible recoiling line welds is determined in consultation with the customer. If welds are permitted, Tata Steel is better able to implement the best coil weight. A recoiling line weld is marked with a single hole in the centre of the strip, close to the weld. On request the identifying hole can be left out. Coils with welds are available on continuously-annealed products – please contact us for details.?You can find details on how to get in touch with us in 'Contact Us' below.

EN-Automotive-Product-Cold-rolled-Forming-All Grades Overview

Overview

Our forming steel is available in a choice of widths up to 2050mm and thicknesses up to 3.1mm. This provides opportunities for cutting waste and maximising yield.These products are made using one of two process routes:

  • continuous annealing (CA)
  • batch annealing (BA)

Applications

Automotive components and body panels

Relationship with standards

Cold-rolled steel for forming complies with European standard EN 10130: 2006 and is available in the grades shown below.

European standard VDA

EN-EngineeringAutomotive-Product-Cold-rolled-All Grades Surface aspects

Surface aspects

Surface quality

?

Surface quality A

Defects that do not influence the formability or the application of surface coatings are permitted. They are defects such as pores, minor scratches, slight indentations, small grooves or slight discolouration.?

Surface quality B

The better side must be free of defects that can spoil the uniform appearance of a high-quality paint or of an electrolytic coating. The other side must at least conform to surface quality A. Not all combinations of thickness and width are available in surface quality B. Please contact us for details.?

Inspected side

As a rule, the upper side of the strip is inspected; on request, the strip can be wound so that the inspected side is the underside.

?

Surface texture/roughness

Cold-rolled annealed and skin-passed steel is available in several surface textures. Unless specified otherwise, Tata Steel will supply normal roughness. The table below shows the range of surface textures according to EN 10130:2006.

?

Preservative oil

The standard oil applied by Tata Steel acts as a protective coating. Other types of oil may be available to meet your requirement.
Tata Steel offers a range of oiling levels from 0.25 - 1.7 g/m2?per side.
Other oiling levels are available on request. Tata Steel is not responsible for the risk of corrosion during storage or shipment if material is ordered in the un-oiled condition.

?

Surface cleanliness

Tata Steel can guarantee improved surface cleanliness on request for batch-annealed products. The cleanliness is tested with a tape test, in which the loss of reflection is measured. The reflection gives an indication of the oil residue on the annealed product. Two levels of loss of reflectivity are available for batch annealed products: a maximum of 20% or a maximum of 30%. Continuously-annealed products typically exhibit a loss of reflection up to around 10%.

Coil welds

For batch-annealed coils, in general, pickling line welds are included. The number of permissible recoiling line welds is determined in consultation with the customer. If welds are permitted, Tata Steel is better able to implement the best coil weight. A recoiling line weld is marked with a single hole in the centre of the strip, close to the weld. On request the identifying hole can be left out. Coils with welds are available on continuously-annealed products – please contact us for details.?You can find details on how to get in touch with us in 'Contact Us' below.

EN-Automotive-Product-Cold-rolled-Forming-All Grades Overview

Overview

Our forming steel is available in a choice of widths up to 2050mm and thicknesses up to 3.1mm. This provides opportunities for cutting waste and maximising yield.These products are made using one of two process routes:

  • continuous annealing (CA)
  • batch annealing (BA)

Applications

Automotive components and body panels

Relationship with standards

Cold-rolled steel for forming complies with European standard EN 10130: 2006 and is available in the grades shown below.

European standard VDA

Surface aspects

Surface quality

?

Surface quality A

Defects that do not influence the formability or the application of surface coatings are permitted. They are defects such as pores, minor scratches, slight indentations, small grooves or slight discolouration.?

Surface quality B

The better side must be free of defects that can spoil the uniform appearance of a high-quality paint or of an electrolytic coating. The other side must at least conform to surface quality A. Not all combinations of thickness and width are available in surface quality B. Please contact us for details.?

Inspected side

As a rule, the upper side of the strip is inspected; on request, the strip can be wound so that the inspected side is the underside.

?

Surface texture/roughness

Cold-rolled annealed and skin-passed steel is available in several surface textures. Unless specified otherwise, Tata Steel will supply normal roughness. The table below shows the range of surface textures according to EN 10130:2006.

?

Preservative oil

The standard oil applied by Tata Steel acts as a protective coating. Other types of oil may be available to meet your requirement.
Tata Steel offers a range of oiling levels from 0.25 - 1.7 g/m2?per side.
Other oiling levels are available on request. Tata Steel is not responsible for the risk of corrosion during storage or shipment if material is ordered in the un-oiled condition.

?

Surface cleanliness

Tata Steel can guarantee improved surface cleanliness on request for batch-annealed products. The cleanliness is tested with a tape test, in which the loss of reflection is measured. The reflection gives an indication of the oil residue on the annealed product. Two levels of loss of reflectivity are available for batch annealed products: a maximum of 20% or a maximum of 30%. Continuously-annealed products typically exhibit a loss of reflection up to around 10%.

Coil welds

For batch-annealed coils, in general, pickling line welds are included. The number of permissible recoiling line welds is determined in consultation with the customer. If welds are permitted, Tata Steel is better able to implement the best coil weight. A recoiling line weld is marked with a single hole in the centre of the strip, close to the weld. On request the identifying hole can be left out. Coils with welds are available on continuously-annealed products – please contact us for details.?You can find details on how to get in touch with us in 'Contact Us' below.
