perform® - strong yet formable
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 cleanness 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® sheets are cut-to-length from hot-rolled strips and are available in thicknesses up to 12 mm.
- Minimum yield points up to 1,100 MPa (perform® 1100) with very good cold formability
- Press braking and bending with very small radii
- Notch impact energy 27 J at -40 °C
- Excellent surface quality
- Outstanding weldability
Please note: Our perform® steels are distributed in Europe under the brand names referring to the metric system (the yield strength given in MPa). In some publications (like data sheets or brochures) only the European brand names and the corresponding values in the metric system may be listed.
