Properties

After drawing, cold rolled steels for conventional enamelling are used for:

 

Grades DC01EK, DC04EK, DC05EK and DC06EK comply with EN 10209. Grade DC05EK was developed for the manufacture of bathtubs. Grade DC07EK AM FCE is intended for very deep drawing applications.

Advantages

These grades are suitable for light and deep drawing and two-side enamelling adapted to the client's process (wet or dry enamelling). They also offer excellent resistance to "fish scale" defects. We can guarantee a minimum TH of 100, in accordance with EN 10209 for grades DC01EK, DC03EK AM FCE, DC04EK and DC05EK.

Applications

These steels have many applications:

Recommendations for use

Forming

The different grades are adapted to the difficulty of enamelling the given parts.

 

Joining

Grades DC01EK EN 10209, DC03EK AM FCE, DC04EK EN 10209, DC05EK EN 10209, DC06EK EN 10209 and DC07EK AM FCE can be welded without any difficulty, whatever the welding process may be. Other joining processes (clinching, crimping) may also be used.

 

Enamelling

Surface preparation:

 

Application of the enamel and firing:

Finally, firing is performed at a temperature of about 830°C.
