Around appliances: highly formable, functional and visually appealing starting materials
Soft-close drawers or a sophisticated coffee maker design – requirements on products around the appliances are increasing, as is cost awareness. The steel business of thyssenkrupp provides suitable starting materials for white goods, furniture and other household industries.
Steel made by thyssenkrupp is robust yet readily formable. We are continuously driving developments to allow the optimum processing and fabrication of our steel products. For example, our zinc-aluminum-coated galfan® materials are characterized by outstanding formability and corrosion resistance.
Moreover, the surface finish of the material can be designed individually. In particular, the organic coated metal sheet of the pladur® product family provides unique color plus look and feel variants for household appliances such as pladur® Metal Look, including anti-fingerprint features. Since for steel with a finished surface the elaborate individual coating is no longer needed, this results in attractive cost advantages.
