Higher strength steels are desirable for dent resistance, increased load bearing capability, better crash energy management, or for part mass reduction through a decrease in sheet metal thickness. An increase in strength generally leads to reduced ductility or formability. Care must be taken in designing parts, tooling, and fabrication processes to obtain the greatest benefit from the higher strength sheet steels. Consultation in grade selection between user and steel producer is recommended to insure compatibility of the strength and forming characteristics. Strength in these steels is achieved through chemical composition alloying and special processing.
