Property Consistency

HyCAL produces our AHSS/UHSS steels using an infinitely variable, optimized blend of hydrogen to quench. Our technology allows for flexible selection of quench rate, end quench temperature and final thermal path a single line configuration. This control results in unrivaled consistency of properties across the entire profile of our strip—both length and width.

The finite control the line provides also allows us to switch production from one grade to another in less than an hour.

Data taken from 100 specimens from 10 samples of HyCAL MS1300 of thicknesses from 1-2mm, tested longitudinally across width, with estimated normal distributions and specification limits added. ALL specimens tested in spec.

The AHSS/UHSS market opportunity is evolving.  And HyCAL is driving steel lightweighting technology forward.
