Introducing Docol 1500 MZE for automakers' BIW
March 21, 2016 0:00 CET 6 min read
With Docol 1500 MZE electrogalvanized martensitic steel for cars, we now offer automakers worldwide a cost-effective solution to improve environmental performance by lowering the weight of the vehicle. The new grade is appropriate for a range of applications that require corrosion protection, energy absorption and low weight.
Docol® 1500 MZE is a cold-rolled, electrogalvanized advanced high-strength steel developed for applications in cars with stringent requirements for low weight and high energy absorption. The steel is well suited for roll forming. The minimum tensile strength is 1500 N/mm², and its high strength is achieved in the manufacturing process, which uses a special heat treatment together with an extremely high cooling rate. One typical application for Docol 1500 MZE is sill reinforcements.
By stretching the limits for Docol electrogalvanized martensitic steel, we create new opportunities in the automotive sector. For many years now, our Docol series of martensitic grades have been contributing to low weight and sustainability without compromising performance. As knowledge and awareness are spread, more designers are seeing the possibilities of using our material. We have continual requests by companies across the globe for our strongest and highest strength steels. We now welcome your trials for our latest development in this range.
