For higher strength and lower weight, consider Advance High Strength Steels
Formability: % Elongation: Good
For better formability consider Deep Drawing Steel
Corrosion Resistance: Better
For better corrosion resistance, consider Coated Steel
What is HSLA steel?
High Strength Low Alloy (HSLA) steels are very strong, highly formable, and easy to weld. They resist corrosion and rust better than plain-carbon steels. HSLA Steels are made to provide specific mechanical properties rather than specific chemical compositions. Use HSLA steels in cars, trucks, cranes, bridges, and other structures where their high strength-to-weight ratio is most cost-effective.
Recommended for: making parts with more complex shapes that weigh less. Use HSLA steels in cars, trucks, cranes, bridges, and other structures where their high strength-to-weight ratio is most cost-effective.
Chemistry: up to several percent of Mn, Si, Cr, Mo.
Why HSLA steel?
When using oscillating coils in a stamping operation
loading times are reduced by up to 100%
Because of its mechanical properties, High Strength Low Alloy steels can be used to save weight, yet increase strength.
Calculate Coil Weight, Maximum Coil OD, and Coil Lineal Feet.
Cost Savings of using HSLA steel?
By using thinner, lighter steels with increased strength, high strength steels give more footage and thereby lower cost per pound.
Siegal Steel provides additional cost savings by developing stock and release programs of cold rolled HSLA steel coils that match your inventory needs.
