What is it?
Deep-Drawing Steel (sometimes noted as DDS or DDQ) is used to describe steel that contains less than 0.025% carbon. As with Drawing Steel, this grade of steel is is suitable for producing deep-drawn parts or any other parts requiring significant altering to shape. Deep-drawing steel can be considered the middle point between Drawing Steel, and Extra-Deep-Drawing Steel (which contains even less carbon than Deep-Drawing Steel).
Deep-drawing steel can be used to fabricate automotive body sides, roofs, floor pans, reinforcements, doors, deck lids and hoods with difficult shapes.
