SLIMulations with phs-scalefree®
® is the first hot-forming steel up to 2000 MPa with a thin zinc coating. Components were used in the SLIMulations to compare the originally used steels with phs-scalefree ® and corresponding crash tests simulated. The baseline represents a 5-star-safety mid-size car (source: NCAP).

Learn in the interview how you can save weight in real terms in a mid-size car with innovative ultralights steel grades by voestalpine.
The first hot-forming steel with a thin zinc coating for press-hardened components up to 2000 MPa is called phs-scalefree and is supplied exclusively by voestalpine
See how the high-strength ahss classic cold-forming steel saves up to 4.09 kg in weight when compared with conventional steels.
3.58 kg weight savings in crash components with ultra-high-strength dual-phase and complex-phase cold-forming steels, ahss high-ductility
Excellent cold formability in bending and roll-forming while maintaining the highest strength leve.
– 2.70 kg weight saving.
