Docol 1400M martensitic steel helps improve crashworthiness and ensure a lightweight design and cost-efficient production methods for the automotive industry. Docol is one of the strongest cold rolled advanced high-strength steels on the market and has become the material of choice for automotive applications such as side impact beams, bumpers and structural components.
Cold rolled / UC: thickness 0.50-2.10 mm, width up to 1527 mm.
Cold rolled / EG: thickness 0.80-1.80 mm, width up to 1200 mm.
Slit strip and cut to length sheets are available upon request.
Grade and coating specific restrictions on available dimensions may occur.

The metal coating options for Docol products include:
Electrogalvanized coating (EG) is applied continuously by electro deposition. The coating consists of zinc (>99%). Electrogalvanized steel is characterized by its excellent surface quality and uniform coating thickness.
Grade specific availability of metal coatings for Docol products is given in the Mechanical properties table (Coating).
|Coating type||Coating class||Standard||Coating mass per side, single spot test (g/m2)||Thickness per side informative (µm)|
Docol metal coated products are available with surface quality for unexposed applications.
In addition to these coating masses, OEM specific coatings and single sided EG coatings are available upon request.
Uncoated (UC): available as oiled.
Electrogalvanized (EG): available as oiled and/or chemically passivated or phosphated.
All surface treatments are in accordance with RoHS directive (2011/65/EU) and do not contain Chromium VI (Cr6+). Surface treatments provide only temporary surface protection during transportation and storage. In order to avoid corrosion damages, care must be taken to keep the products dry during transportation and storage. If they become wet, they must be separated and situated so that they are dried quickly.
