NanoSteel Delivers Advanced Automotive Sheet to General Motors

By teaming up with launch partner, AK Steel, an industry leader in steel product development, NanoSteel has now completed commercial production trials and delivered its first automotive sheet material to General Motors for initial testing.

NanoSteel’s advanced high strength steel (AHSS) overcomes the historical tradeoff between strength and formability by offering tensile strength of approximately 1200 MPa and elongation of 50%. This combination of properties enables automakers to use thinner gauges of steel to reduce part weight and form unique geometry parts to meet stiffness requirements for ride quality and safety, all while leveraging their existing manufacturing capital equipment and skilled workforce.  

Altogether, this new sheet steel offers a step-change improvement in steel lightweighting capability, allowing automakers to affordably meet the challenge of rising global fuel-economy regulations.
