Whether for car hoods, furniture fittings, steel buildings or gas cylinders, today a virtual examination is indispensable for component and structure design. But no matter which software is used, perhaps the most important requirement for a successful component design is access to the right material data.

The StronSal®MC zinc-magnesium coating offers many advantages for vehicle body shell elements that other coatings do not: From better processing to improved corrosion protection to reduced material use that consequently conserves resources. StronSal®MC's diverse advantages have also convinced the BMW Group, which has given Salzgitter Flachstahl a release for a larger production series with this innovative coating.

The AcaSal®700 steel grade is a high strength steel based on thermomechanically rolled strip. It features a very high yield strength and tensile strength, with sufficiently high expansion for cold forming processes.
