perform® - strong yet formable

Truck undercarriage with perform®

The steel grades in the perform® series are low-carbon micro-alloyed steels which are thermomechanically rolled.

The low carbon and alloying element levels, the cleanliness of the steels with their low sulfur content and the special rolling process result in excellent properties including good cold formability, weldability and toughness.

perform® cut-to-length sheets are cut to length from hot-rolled strips and are available in thicknesses up to 12 mm.

perform® in use

Modern technology often requires a combination of conflicting properties, e.g. high strength and at the same time good formability. The development and use of cold forming steels provided solutions to numerous problems encountered in many structures, e.g. in vehicle manufacture.


More environmental protection, more safety and cost efficiency are important issues in the automotive industry. As a long-standing partner, thyssenkrupp Steel Europe understands these requirements and provides comprehensive industry-specific expertise with regard to material as well as technology.
