On 28 September 2015, Sébastien Crémel, Research Engineer at ArcelorMittal Global R&D, will give a speech at the European Conference on Applications of Surface and Interface Analysis "Ecasia" in Granada (Spain). He will present the latest methodological developments to detect hydrogen in advanced high strength steels and coatings.
As they offer high mechanical strength and considerable ductility at reasonable cost, modern steels allow car manufactures to answer the current needs of the automotive industry. But, occasionally, undesired and uncontrolled hydrogen diffusion into coated or uncoated steels can lead to various problems of hydrogen embrittlement. ArcelorMittal is at the forefront of research and uses the most advanced analytical method for hydrogen detection to guarantee outstanding quality control and ensure our steel remains the best material for manufacturing safe cars.
