High global and local formability, with higher elongation and higher resistance to edge cracking than conventional SS steel.
Stellar crash performance, with ductility left in the steel for additional energy absorption.
Greater design flexibility enables deep drawing of complex geometries with secondary forming.
Highly resistant to compression failure.
UHSS strength levels with improved FLD and HER performance compared to conventional SS steel.
3rd Gen AHSS allows for simplified, cost-effective, cold forming of complex auto parts.
Very good RSW weldability, comparable to conventional SS steel grades.
Enables lighter, more complex BIW components — with less risk of edge cracking compared to DP.
