Superb corrosion resistance is just part of the stainless steel story for modern automotive applications. The latest ultra-high-strength grades also offer high strength and excellent crash resistance that makes them ideal for creating innovative lightweight concepts for demanding structural applications such as:
- Crash-relevant structural parts
- Seat structures
- Electrical vehicle battery compartments
- Fuel tanks
Stainless steel is also the ultimate sustainable material. Not only is it produced sustainably, using a high level of recycled scrap material, it is also 100% recyclable when a vehicle reaches the end of its working life.
