Abstract:
The benefits of bake-hardening steels for body applications in the automotive industry are well known since several years. These steels offer the potential of weigth savings without major loss of formability. Thus this group of high-strength steels is the first to find broad application for exposed panels.This paper sums up the different concepts of producing cold-rolled electrogalvanized and hot-dip galvanized bake-hardening steels. These concepts are critically discussed from the point of view of stable production. Important aspects for batch annealed or continuously annealed steels are the control of grain size and temper rolling. New hot-dip galvanized bake-hardening steels have been developed; as a result of degassing to ultra low carbon contents in modern vacuum treatment facilities. Beside bake-hardening effects special emphasis is given to the strain-hardening behaviour and to the ageing resistance of bake-hardening steels.
