Steel with the thermal hardening effect (BH)

Severstal PJSC manufactures and supplies thermally hardened steel (cold-rolled steel), which is used in the automotive industry.
  • Parts of car body and automobile components
Steel with the thermal hardening effect (BH) 0


  • Hardening achieved in a single process flow in the process of drying of the body paint and varnish coating
  • Increased resistance to dents of finished parts with slight deformation during molding (hood, roof, doors, fenders)
  • Significant mass reduction potential with equivalent dent resistance (thickness reduction is compensated by increased yield strength due to heat treatment process)
