Vitreous Enameling Steel Types
ASTM A424

SRJ Steel is experienced with all enameling steel types and their uses. 

1. Type 1 or Vlt 1- Steel has no iron carbides as carbon level is ultra low. Material has excellent formability and is appropriate for appearance end uses such as cooktops. This steel type has become difficult to source due to reduced worldwide availability.

OCA: Open coil annealing where a wire separates wraps within the coil and steam removes carbon during batch anneailing process

Modified: Developed in the early 1990's by Hoogovens Steel (now Tata) after closing their OCA furnace

2. Type 2 or Vlt 2 - Steel has iron carbides as carbon level is low. Material has good formability and is appropriate for non-appearance end uses such as signage or oven liners. With steelmaking advancements recently, being used a substitute for Type 1. Due to more standard processing at the mill, this steel type is least costly to produce.

3. Type 3 or Vlt 3 - Steel has stable carbides rather than iron carbides due to alloy addition of Titanium. Material has excellent deep drawing and is appropriate for appearance end uses such as bathtubs or barbecue lids. This most modern steel type now has best worldwide availability. 

All Vit types from SRJ Steel have excellent and verifiable glass bonding character.
