Low Carbon, Heat-Treatable Boron Steel, Uncoated or Aluminized Pre-Coated
|Publication Date:||1 March 2007|
This specification covers the requirements for low carbon, heat-treatable boron steel used in the manufacture of structural parts requiring heat treatments to achieve high strength. Press-hardened steel can be pre-formed and subsequently hot-stamped and die quenched, but post-forming should not be the scope for this type of steel. Typical applications include door impact beams, bumper impact beams, and reinforcements for impact structures.
