Our strongest martensitic steel today, Docol® 1700M is an alternative to aluminum for lightweight design with cost-efficient production and sustainable features.
Trials are ongoing for using this steel in automotive applications such as side impact beams, bumpers and structural components.
Lightweight battery protection with good crash stiffness can be cost effectively cold formed using Docol® 1700 M ultra high strength steel. The team at SSAB that focus on Docol® 1700M for electric vehicles can give many examples on how this is done.
