After annealing steel strips can be skinpassed.
Skinpass is a light rolling process that reduce the elongation of the material from 0,2 % to 3,5% according to the quality and the final use of the material, it reduces the yield strength and makes the material easier to stamp.
Skinpass is also used to create the required surface finish, both bright or rough, it depends on customer needs.

Skinpass has also an influence on the planarity of the material. As a matter of fact, thanks to this process possible planarity problem both in the middle and on the border of the material can be corrected.
