corrender for automotive applications

From exposed-panel quality to high-strength and ultra-high-strength steels

Based on many years of experience, voestalpine is one step ahead in the automotive industry with corrender zinc-magnesium-aluminum coatings.

The increasing significance of zinc-magnesium-aluminum coatings is undisputed in the automotive industry. The high quality requirements with respect to surface and appearance must also be met by this innovative alloy. Further development of corrender was an important step in meeting the demands on exposed-quality components.

With corrender, voestalpine has now reached this important milestone! Paint tests at renowned automotive manufacturers have proven the exposed-panel quality of corrender and the supply of serial dimensions will commence shortly.

The surface of our corrender strip has always been of the highest quality. As a close partner to renowned customers in the automotive industry, it is important that we work in collaboration with customers to define this significant milestone of exposed-panel quality.

The highest goal was to transfer the current level of quality in our conventionally galvanized steel strip to a zinc-magnesium alloy and to provide our customers with a perfect surface and additional processing advantages. The advantage of substantially improved forming properties is especially attractive in exposed autobody applications. Less tool abrasion and reduced scoring contribute to additional component surface improvement.

Based on serial production of corrender since 2007, voestalpine has gained experience like no other manufacturer in detailed production expertise and attained a deep understanding of the alloy system's processing and functional properties. This experience not only allows the supply of corrender and meets the highest demands on surface quality for exposed-panel applications, but also for steel applications that range from deep-drawing to high-strength and ultra-high-strength grades.

With its ultra-modern hot-dip galvanizing lines, voestalpine is also in a position to assist its customers in making the switch to corrender for the entire autobody.
