Presenting 30 years of steel performance and its perspective at the SURCAR 2019 conference in Cannes


Over the past 30 years, the development of new steel grades has had a huge impact on the automotive industry. Higher strength grades have been introduced which allow OEMs to use steel in much thinner gauges than ever before.

Impact of new steels on automotive coatings

Coatings and surface treatments have sustained these developments by increasing corrosion protection and improving the steel’s surface to make stamping easier.

Steel: the perfect skin


Cécile Pesci, product development manager for automotive coatings and surface treatments at ArcelorMittal Global R&D, will discuss these developments during SURCAR 2019 – the world’s leading conference for the automotive body and paint finishing industry.
