Continuously hot-dip coated steel flat products for cold forming - Technical delivery conditions

This European Standard specifies requirements for continuously hot-dip coated products made of low carbon steels for cold forming, of steels for construction, of steels with high proof strength for cold forming and coated with zinc (Z), zinc-iron alloy (ZF), zinc-aluminium alloy (ZA), aluminium-zinc alloy (AZ), aluminium-silicon alloy (AS) or zinc-magnesium alloy (ZM) and for continuously hot-dip coated products made of multiphase steels for cold forming coated with zinc (Z), zinc-iron alloy (ZF), zinc-aluminium alloy (ZA) or zinc-magnesium alloy (ZM) in thicknesses of 0,20 mm ≤ t < 3,0 mm.
By agreement at the time of enquiry and order, this European Standard is applicable to continuously hot-dip coated flat products of an expanded validity range defined for thicknesses t < 0,20mm or in thicknesses 3,0mm < t < 6,5mm with agreed mechanical properties and test specimens, adhesion of coating and surface condition requirements.
The thickness is the final thickness of the delivered product after coating.
This document applies to strip of all widths and to sheets cut from it (≥ 600 mm width) and cut lengths
(< 600 mm width).
NOTE 1   Products coated with (pure) aluminium can also be available, but are not covered by this European standard.
NOTE 2   The products covered by this European Standard are used where cold formability, high strength, a defined minimum yield strength and corrosion resistance are the most important factors. Corrosion resistance of the product is proportional to the coating thickness, hence to its mass (see also 7.3.2). The products covered by this European Standard can be used as substrates for organic coated flat products specified in EN 10169 for building and general engineering applications.
NOTE 3   By agreement at the time of enquiry and order, this European standard is applicable to other continuously hot-dip coated hot rolled steel flat products (e.g. in accordance with EN 10149-2).

Foreword
This document (prEN 10346:2013) has been prepared by Technical Committee ECISS/TC 109 “Coated and
uncoated flat products to be used for cold forming”, the secretariat of which is held by AFNOR.
This document is currently submitted to the CEN Enquiry.

1 Scope
This European Standard specifies requirements for continuously hot-dip coated products made of low carbon
steels for cold forming, of steels for construction, of steels with high proof strength for cold forming and coated
with zinc (Z), zinc-iron alloy (ZF), zinc-aluminium alloy (ZA), aluminium-zinc alloy (AZ), aluminium-silicon alloy
(AS) or zinc-magnesium alloy (ZM) and for continuously hot-dip coated products made of multiphase steels for
cold forming coated with zinc (Z), zinc-iron alloy (ZF), zinc-aluminium alloy (ZA) or zinc-magnesium alloy (ZM)
in thicknesses of 0,20 mm ≤ t < 3,0 mm.
By agreement at the time of enquiry and order, this European Standard is applicable to continuously hot-dip
coated flat products of an expanded validity range defined for thicknesses t < 0,20mm or in thicknesses
3,0mm < t < 6,5mm with agreed mechanical properties and test specimens, adhesion of coating and surface
condition requirements.
The thickness is the final thickness of the delivered product after coating.
This document applies to strip of all widths and to sheets cut from it (≥ 600 mm width) and cut lengths
(< 600 mm width).
NOTE 1 Products coated with (pure) aluminium can also be available, but are not covered by this European standard.
NOTE 2 The products covered by this European Standard are used where cold formability, high strength, a defined
minimum yield strength and corrosion resistance are the most important factors. Corrosion resistance of the product is
proportional to the coating thickness, hence to its mass (see also 7.3.2). The products covered by this European Standard
can be used as substrates for organic coated flat products specified in EN 10169 for building and general engineering
applications.
NOTE 3 By agreement at the time of enquiry and order, this European standard is applicable to other continuously hot-
dip coated hot rolled steel flat products (e.g. in accordance with EN 10149-2).

1)
bake-hardening steel (B)
steel exhibiting an increase in proof strength following heating in the region of 170 °C for 20 min
Note 1 to entry: These steels have a good suitability for cold forming and present a high resistance to plastic straining
(which is increased on finished parts during heat treatment) and a good dent resistance.

prEN 10346:2013 (E)
3.8
complex-phase steel
CP steel
steel with a multiphase microstructure containing mostly a ferritic-bainitic matrix as well as martensite,
tempered martensite, retained austenite and pearlite as additional phases
Note 1 to entry: The fine grained microstructure may be generated by retarded recrystallisation or precipitation of
micro-alloying elements.
3.9
dual-phase steel
DP steel
steel with a ferritic matrix containing a martensitic second phase present in the form of islands and possibly
bainite as a complementary phase
Note 1 to entry: According to their high tensile strength levels, dual phase steels show a low yield strength ratio and a
high work hardening rate.
3.10
ferritic-bainitic steel
FB steel
Steel with a matrix of ferrite or strengthened ferrite containing bainite or strengthened bainite
Note 1 to entry: The strengthening of the matrix is caused by a high density of dislocations, by grain refinement and
precipitation of micro-alloying elements.
3.11

2)
interstitial free steel (Y)
IF steel

steel with a controlled composition to achieve improved r- and n-values
Note 1 to entry: These steels have both, a high mechanical strength and an excellent suitability for cold forming, due
to their solid solution hardening and interstitial free microstructure.
3.12
1)
low alloy/micro-alloyed steel (LA)
High strength steels obtained through alloy additions of niobium, titanium, and vanadium.
Note 1 to entry: Those alloying elements can be added either alone or in combination. Alternatively, carbon-
manganese alloying concepts in combination with grain refinement can be used.
Note 2 to entry: Combined precipitation and grain refinement hardening modes allow reaching a high mechanical
resistance while reducing the content of alloying elements.
3.13
Low carbon steel
steel designated by rolling type (hot or cold rolled) and a steel name DX51D to DX57D
Note 1 to entry: Higher grades correspond to better formability.
3.14
Steel for construction
basic steel with different strength levels and no special demand for suitability for cold forming

3.15
transformation induced plasticity steel
TRIP steel
steel with a mainly ferritic matrix containing retained austenite capable of transformation into martensite during
the forming process (TRIP effect)
Note 1 to entry: Because of high work-hardening rate the steel reaches high uniform elongation values and high
tensile strength levels.
3.16
coating mass
Total mass of coating (expressed in grams per square metre) given for both surfaces (see 7.9)
Note 1 to entry: In combination with the symbol for the coating type (Z, ZF, ZA, ZM, AZ, AS), the nominal coating mass
is used as coating designation.
