DC01 | 1.0330
DC01 represents the basic grade of the DC steel family and is also known under the former designations St12 or FeP01. This grade can be used for simple forming operations such as bending, coining, beading and drawing.
Mild low-carbon steel for cold forming

1) Where no yield strength is defined, the respective values shall apply to the 0.2 % proof stress (Rp0.2) or to the lower yield strength (ReL). For thicknesses ≤ 0.7 mm but > 0.5 mm, the maximum yield strength values may be 20 MPa higher. In case of thicknesses ≤ 0.5 mm, the maximum yield limits may be 40 MPa higher.
2) For thicknesses ≤ 0.7 mm but > 0.5 mm, the minimum elongation at fracture may be 2 units lower. For thicknesses ≤ 0.5 mm, the minimum elongation at fracture may be 4 units lower.
3) The r90 and n90 values apply to product thicknesses ≥ 0.5 mm only.
4) For thicknesses > 2 mm, the r90-value is reduced by 0.2.
