SPCC Steel

SPCC steel is a cold-rolled carbon steel sheet or strip for general uses, which is named by Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS). It is equivalent to Chinese grades Q195, Q215A and German grade St12. The first letter “S” in SPCC is for steel, which represents the material. The second letter “P” is for plate. While the third letter “C” stands for cold rolling. And the last letter “C” means commercial quality. There are some similar grades, such as SPCD for drawing quality. If the third letter is “H”, that is SPHC, which means the base metal is hot rolled steel. Below are some similar codes.

What Is SPCC Steel?

SPCC —- Cold rolled steel sheet and strip of commercial quality;

SPHC —- Hot rolled steel sheet and strip of commercial quality;

SPCD — Cold rolled steel sheet and strip of drawing quality, which is equivalent to St13/14, DC03/04;

SPCE — Cold rolled steel sheet and strip of deep drawing quality. It similar codes are St15/16, DC05/06;

SPHD —- Hot rolled steel sheet and strip of drawing quality;

SGCC —- Hot dip galvanized cold rolled steel of commercial quality.

SPCC Steel Specifications

The common specification of SPCC cold rolled sheet is 0.5-3.0 mm*1,250 mm*2,440 mm; The max width and length can reach up to 2,000mm and 6,000 mm.

while the specification of SPCC cold-rolled strip and coil is 0.3-2.5 mm *355-1,500 mm.

Applications of SPCC Metal

SPCC steel is widely used in various applications due to its high strength, durability, and excellent surface finish. Here are some of its applications:

  • Automotive industry: SPCC is used to manufacture automobile parts such as car bodies, engine components, and other structural components;
  • Electrical appliances, such as refrigerators, air conditioners, and washing machines;
  • Construction, such as roofing sheets, wall panels, and other structural components;
  • Packaging materials, such as cans, drums, and containers.
  • Furniture, such as cabinets, shelves, and tables.
  • Industrial equipment: to manufacture various industrial equipment such as machinery parts, toolboxes, and storage racks.


SPCC stands for “Steel Plate Cold Rolled Commercial,” and it refers to a grade of cold rolled steel. Its excellent formability, strength, and resistance to rust and corrosion make it a popular choice for a variety of applications. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!
