High-strength steels for the demanding requirements in lightweight design

The stronger the steel material, the more difficult it will be to form, but this old rule is long a thing of the past at at voestalpine. The innovative steel developments and products push the limits of what is efficiently feasible. With a decades-long lead in development, voestalpine boasts of vast expertise in advanced high-strength steels (ahss), sets new standards in martensitic steels and opens up new possibilities in hot forming for press hardening steels with zinc coatings.

ultra-sustainable: greentec steel

All ultralights by voestalpine steels are now available as greentec steel with a reduced carbon footprint. Ten percent of the direct carbon emissions at the Linz site are avoided through process-optimized operation in the production of greentec steel. The material and processing properties of the steel are not affected in any way by the carbon-reduced production route.
