Docol 800 and Strenx 100 Advanced High-Strength Steel sheets offer a great alternative to 4130 Normalized and Annealed Sheets. Docol and Strenx sheets are both strong and formable, eliminating the need for annealed or normalized conditions. The key advantages are:

  • May cost less than 4130
  • High YS/TS ratio - means that stresses in highly formed regions are comparable to the stresses in slightly formed regions. Small differences in residual stresses over the cross section reduce the tendency for bending and twisting of the profile.
  • High internal cleanliness – less slag inclusions in the steel make it possible to roll form into narrow radii
  • 10 to 15% Stronger than 4130
  • Smaller Heat Affected Zone (HAZ) - HAZ is less brittle and retains better elongation than 4130 typically does
  • Greater resistance to fatigue
  • Absorbs energy and presents a more consistent and controlled failure mode
  • Compatible with welding to 4130 and Mild Steel
