The innovative bainitic hot-rolled strip steel is a multiphase steel with a unique microstructure for a very uniform hardness distribution. This results in a material that is less susceptible to cracking than conventional multiphase steels. The material features a very high yield strength and tensile strength with sufficiently high elongation at break for cold forming processes. If offers the following positive characteristics:
The hot-dipped zinc coating and StronSal® (zinc-magnesium) coating offer two alternatives for corrosion protection.
Grade SZBS800+Z material is used in both the body and the chassis.
In the vehicle body, the material is particularly used in elements relevant to safety, such as reinforcements and supporting structures.
Thanks to its good fatigue properties, SZBS800+Z is particularly well-suited for use in vehicle parts subject to high dynamic stresses. At the same time, these profit from the potential for weight reductions due to the material's high strength. Examples of typical applications here are transverse and trailing arms as well as track and spring control arms.
You will find more information on SZBS800+Z on our product page and in our material information sheet.
