Categorization and Properties of Advanced High Strength Automotive Sheet Steels
This SAE Recommended Practice defines various grades of continuously cast high-strength sheet steels and establishes
mechanical property ranges. These sheet steels can be formed, welded, assembled and painted in automotive
manufacturing processes. They can be specified as hot-rolled or cold-rolled sheet. Furthermore, they can be coated
(hot-dipped galvanized, hot-dipped galvannealed, and electrogalvanized) or uncoated. Not all combinations of strength,
dimensions and coatings may be commercially available; consult your steel supplier for details.
