ArcelorMittal invests in R&D to develop the steels of the future and to present solutions to its customers that will respond to the challenges to come.
ArcelorMittal recently unveiled Jetgal®. This revolutionary new coating has been specifically developed by ArcelorMittal for cold rolled advanced high strength steel (AHSS) used in automotive applications such as Fortiform®. This pure zinc coating is applied using a hydrogen-free coating process known as Jet Vapor Deposition (JVD). It allows vehicle makers to achieve the most uniform corrosion protection available on the market today. The JVD technology coats a moving strip of steel in a vacuum chamber, by vaporizing zinc onto the steel.
Steel coated with zinc is used for numerous applications going from the automotive industry, to construction, to packaging and household appliances. There are multiple advantages to this new type of technology:
