Summary Bake hardening steels are being used as body panels in modern cars. These steels are stronger through an ageing process after baking in the paint ovens, which allows the thickness of the steel to be reduced without reducing the denting performance. The current study examined whether the steel ages at room temperature prior to forming which would deteriorate the formability. The work developed a new test and provided insight into acceptable levels of natural ageing which could be tolerated in the manufacturing process.
