General Info About Extra Deep Drawing Steel

EDDS is low carbon steel with the highest formability, stretchability, and drawability when compared to other drawing steels. It is the most commonly used steel for automotive parts such as fuel tanks. It is also extensively used in baths, sinks, kitchenware, cookware, and refrigerators.

EDDS is the most formable version of cold rolled steel. This is due to its low carbon content of 0.06-0.08%. This is because most of the carbon has been removed during the steel making process also meaning EDDS is non aging.

More Details About EDDS

  • Advantages / Disadvantages

    Advantages:

    • EDDS is the most formable type of steel.
    • EDDS is the most stretchable type of steel.
    • EDDS is a non-aging steel.

    Disadvantages:

    • EDDS is very susceptible to dents and fatigue.
  • Industries

    EDDS is most commonly used in the automotive industry and the kitchen home and appliance industry. Its high formability and drawability makes it easy to form into different shapes and sizes.

  • Applications

    EDDS is used in the automotive industry for petrol tanks and other parts. It is also used for kitchenware and appliances such as sink units, cookware, refrigerators, baths, and more.

  • Machining

    EDDS is machinable. It is considered one of the most bendable, stretchable, and formable steel products on the market and can be cut into nearly any shape or configuration necessary. This is one of the main advantages to EDDS.

  • Welding

    EDDS is easily welded.  You are likely to see EDDS products used widely in welded components that need an extra smooth surface.

More Details About EDDS

  • Cold Rolled EDDS

    Cold rolled extra deep drawing steel is EDDS that has been through the cold rolling process. The cold rolling process involves rolling out hot rolled steel at room temperatures. This gives the steel better mechanical properties.

  • Galvanized EDDS

    Galvanized extra deep drawing steel is EDDS that has been through the galvanization process. This means the steel is dipped in a hot zinc bath to give it a protective coating.

  • Galvannealed EDDS

    Galvannealed extra deep drawing steel is galvanized EDDS that has gone through the annealing process. This means the galvanized steel goes through a heat treatment of over 1000 degrees to fuse the zinc coating and steel together.
