Webinar - Emerging Press Hardening Steels and Coatings Contribution for Reduced Weight and CO2 Emissions


Did you know hot stamping solutions are less CO2-intensive than cold stamping solutions, despite a more CO2-intensive process, thanks to maximum light weight and minimum engaged material?


Join this webinar to learn how hot stamping or so-called Press Hardenable Steel (PHS) solutions are having a drastic impact on the carbon footprint of lightweight concepts by registering onto our webinar now. Discover how PHS concepts can be profitable regarding CO2 emissions and weight saving and discover the wealth of opportunities from Arcelormittal new generation of steels and coatings for hot stamping. Discover Usibor® 2000 AS & Ductibor® 1000 AS forces explaining their first serial applications in 2019 and 2020.


  • Usibor® 2000 AS excellent crash ductility and resistance against delayed fracture confirmed by the market
  • Ductibor® 1000 AS excellent local ductility in bending, and a weight saving potential of more than 20% compared to a reference in Dual Phase 600 (DP600)
  • Usibor® Ultraprotect superior coating protection against red rusting for new weight saving opportunities with PHS in the underbody
  • Usibor® 1500 with XCarb® recycled and renewably produced substrate for almost 70% of CO2 savings


The new generation of steels and coatings for hot stamping will allow your business to multiply weight saving opportunities through the extension of the use of PHS in the BIW and contribute to the reduction of the carbon footprint of the BIW.

Compatible with our ArcelorMittal Tailored Blanks laser welding technology, they will contribute to more efficient and performant ArcelorMittal Multi Parts IntegrationTM concepts with further reductions of costs, weight and CO2 emissions.
