perform® – high-strength micro-alloyed cut-to-length sheet

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 20 mm.
