NanoSteel vs. Aluminum

The benefits of advanced high strength steel in automotive lightweighting

Because it's not about density - there are

4 other major considerations

STRENGTH: WILL THE PART BREAK?

To match the strength of NanoSteel, aluminum parts need to double in

thickness and increase in weight. Once strength matches, we need to see

if the part will be stiff enough.

STIFFNESS: WILL THE PART BEND?

The Al part needs to be made even thicker to match the stiffness of the

NanoSteel part, eliminating the remaining weight savings. Next, we

explore altering the part shape to improve performance...

ELONGATION: CAN WE OPTIMIZE THE PART SHAPE?

The NanoSteel part has enough formability to create intricate designs that

allow thinner, lighter parts to maintain the same stiffness and strength.

COST: HOW AFFORDABLE IS IT?

Automakers want to keep cars as affordable as possibl while still meeting

all fuel economy and safety requirements. NanoSteel is the clear choice.

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
