Steel for Automotive Lightweighting

                  NEXMET? is an innovative family of high strength steels for use in automotive lightweighting applications. These products are specifically designed to assist OEMs in meeting future U.S. Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) targets.

                  The NEXMET family of products offer high strength, greater ductility, and improved formability solutions for structural and exterior automotive body lightweighting needs.

                  NEXMET 440EX is an exposed surface quality product combining high yield and tensile strength at thinner gauges to facilitate lightweight designs.

                  NEXMET 1000 and 1200 are revolutionary, hot dip galvanized products, intended for structural applications. Offering the best in strength and elongation, while maintaining the ability to be cold stamped.
