Hot Stamping Process can minimize some problems during the cold forming of Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) such as stretching capacity, spring-back, and dimensional accuracy, and today the Press Hardening Steels (PHS) for hot-forming is widely used to produce some automotive parts with relatively complex shapes such as A-pillars, B-pillars, front/rear side members, etc. Thin Slab Continuous Casting and Direct Rolling (TSCCDR) Process is one kind of green and low cost process on the basis of its compact process characteristics. In this paper, an original Pressing Hardening Steel is developed in Compact Strip Process (CSP) mill in WISCO Ltd. China. The application properties of the new PHS by CSP are studied and the results shows that the new PHS has a good spot and laser weld capability, well painting properties, lower hydrogen induced delayed cracking susceptibility. The original HPS has been successfully applied in some B-pillars, A-pillars and cross members.
