The article describes the influence of an unconventional forming method, such as DRECE, on the resulting mechanical properties and structure of tested materials. In the laboratories of the Technical university of Ostrava we have prototype equipment DRECE for production of very fine grained or nanostructured materials in the form of metal strips. The research is focused on perspective materials, mainly on non – alloyed steels and on selected types of non – ferrous alloys. Material after application of the DRECE process has diametrically increased mechanical properties (Ultimate strength, Yield strength, Hardness, etc.). Ultra ‐ fine ‐ grained (UFG) or nanostructured materials represent a new generation of advanced materials exhibiting unique and technologically attractive properties due to dimension and relationship outcomes. Possibilities of nanostructured materials to change many technologies are almost unprecedented.Keywords: DRECE method, Steel DC01, EN AW 3003, EN CW 508L, Tensile test, Structure
