In this paper the influence of the strain rate on the material properties of the zinc-coated sheet of the thickness (1; 1.5; 1.8) mm made from low-alloyed steel ZINKODUR 340 was analyzed. Increasing the strain rate is one of the possible ways to increase cold mechanical work in products. The tensile test is the most useful method for determining the material characteristic such as ductility. This contribution analyzes the influence of loading rate in range from 1 to 1000mm/min on material characteristics of tested steel during the tensile test. Strain rate is one of the most significant factors, which affected material behavior during the forming and resultant properties of wrought products. Intensity of this influence is function of internal composition of the steel.(2-5)
