SPCC steels are widely used in industrial applications no matter it is an automotive sector, or a home appliance manufacturing industry. SPCC materials have played a significant role in the development of different industries in the globe.
Due to its flexible mechanical properties, like hardness, tensile strength and yield strength it can be formed in to circular shapes, 3d varying peripheries, little bit drawing, stamping, and bending. Moreover SPCC steels are also widely used in construction industry, Since SPCC coils are also used for preparing galvanized product which is called as SGCC steels, therefore galvanized profile are used for construction of industrial frames.
The automotive sector varies in its consumption of SPCC materials, since the rim of motor bikes, bicycles’ rear & front fenders, chain covers, etc are all prepared from SPCC grade. SPCC steels are available in bright and dull finishing. Bright finish is used for coating purposes whereas dull finish is used in painting applications.
The consumption pattern of SPCC materials in the world shows that the demand is increasing rapidly and compelling the need of more capacity of producing it necessitating more rolling mills facilities.
The input material of this material grade is commercial quality hot rolled steels i.e. SPHC steels, which is then cold rolled to form SPCC steel. Normally SPHC coils are more reactive to environment, and thus forms scale on its surface therefore SPHC steels is firstly pickled through acidic solution in pickling lines and then it is cold rolled to form SPCC steels. The cold rolled SPCC material is now quartered hard steels and then it is annealed to form standard temper grade. This standard temper grade is then skin passed from another mill to re-roll the grain structure after annealing. At final stage of commercial quality cold roll mild steel, it can be rolled to give dull finish or bright finish surface.
SPCC steels and material coils are extensively used in manufacturing oil drums, and other types of drums. 0.90 mm to 1.6 mm thickness of cold roll SPCC coils are consumed for drum manufacturing. These SPCC materials are also used for cupboard manufacturing, making of cabinets, and casings of C.P.U etc. The world is gradually moving to explore more and more about SPCC steels as to where more it can be consumed for the well being of human race. Research and development is still on way, steel companies and related institutes are endeavoring level best to ensure its effective usage and improvement regarding its crystallographic structure.
