You probably have heard very often a word related to the automotive industry: Dual Phase.
They are steels with an excellent balance between strength and ductility after the forming process, which shows, for instance, a better behaviour to a collision.
This aspect gives great strain redistribution capacity and thus drawability as well as some tube aspects, with a higher level than the ones of the non-formed metal.
The replacement of some steel degrees by Dual Phase gives the opportunity to reduce the thickness, thus the weight, and at the same time to keep the efficiency during the performance.
