Material description

The data we gather as part of our quality control testing is extremely useful in assessing the extent to which our cold-strip products comply with industry standards and customer specifications, and in analyzing process stability. However, we have found it is increasingly important for customers to have more detailed knowledge of our products' material behavior when designing their own components and processes.

In response to this, the BILSTEIN GROUP now works with renowned universities and institutes to offer the following data for select materials:

Data for forming and crash simulations

• Flow curves from tensile tests (L, Q, D)
• Flow curves at higher deformation degrees
• Forming limit curves

Case-hardened, tempered, and spring steels

• Time-temperature-transformation (TTT) diagrams (isothermal and continuous)
• Austenitizing behavior
• Tempering behavior

General physical properties

• Thermal expansion coefficent
• Specific heat capacity
• Temperature conductivity
• Thermal conductivity
