What is HSLA-V Steel?
  HSLA-V Steel (High-Strength Low-Alloy Steel Microalloyed with Vanadium)

Assembly line, Roofer, and DuctworkHSLA-V is intended to represent those steel grades where a small addition of vanadium (generally less than 0.12%) provides enhanced strength over standard low C-Mn steels, while meeting or exceeding all requirements for ductility, weldability and toughness. These steels are normally supplied in the as-rolled or as-forged condition, eliminating the need for subsequent heat treatments. Eliminating heat treating negates the need for higher alloy contents of Cr, Ni and Mo (hence "Low Alloy"), and provides significant energy savings.
