NanoSteel develops light-weight steel design

Posted 6/20/12

PROVIDENCE – The NanoSteel Co. has developed New Advanced High-Strength Steels that deliver both high strength and high ductility, making them ideal for automotive use.

The patented nano-structure material will allow reduced weight in vehicles while maintaining the safety of heavier, more conventional steel types.

NanoSteel has developed three classes of steel with measured strength/elongation performance of 950 MPa/35 percent, 1200 MPa/30 percent

and 1600 MPa/15 percent respectively.

“These paradigm changing performance levels are enabled by new discoveries related to the formation of nano-scale microstructures (‘nano-structures’),” Daniel Branaga, chief technology officer and founder of NanoSteel said in prepared remarks.

“Previously, sheet steel made of nano-structures was considered too brittle…to form the shapes required for automotive parts,” added Branaga adding that NanoSteel’s materials are based on newly discovered mechanisms that eliminate the cause of brittleness during production.
