Customer benefit:

  • Forming Limit curves (FLC) shows a better forming potential of CR440Y780T-DH (HCT780Xxtend®+Z) in comparison to CR440Y780T (HCT780X+Z)
  • The increased elongation allow the manufacture of solider, more complex components and consequently a further increase in passenger safety without necessitating an increase in the vehicle weight.
