Blechexpo 2015: ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe to present TriBond, a unique, production-ready steel hybrid
The 12th edition of the Blechexpo trade show, taking place in Stuttgart from November 3 to 6, will be the platform for a new material concept from ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe: Developed for hot forming, the hybrid material TriBond is a groundbreaking innovation for customers in the automotive industry. The new three-layer material consists of ultrahigh-strength steel in the middle and ductile steel on the outside. This delivers properties that cannot be realized with homogeneous materials: high ductility and maximum strength in one product. TriBond is particularly suitable for structural parts in cars that need to display both very high strength and ductility, such as longitudinal members and B-pillars. TriBond improves vehicle safety while at the same time allowing cost-efficient weight reduction. ThyssenKrupp is the only automotive supplier capable of offering tailored, hot-formed steel hybrid materials.
Construction, appliances, energy: Further innovative solutions for a variety of industries
For the domestic appliance industry, ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe will present a new member of the PLADUR family of organic coated sheet materials: PLADUR Thermosafe makes for safe handling of hot surfaces of dryers or dishwashers by reducing the thermal conductivity of the steel and thus avoiding contact burns. Another new development in the PLADUR segment will serve the construction industry: As the result of a development partnership with metal forming specialists Fielitz GmbH it is now possible to apply programmable 3D geometries to coil-coated surfaces for use in attractive facades.
E-mobility can benefit from an enhanced grain-oriented electrical steel grade: Powercore is suitable for electric motors and combines low core losses with good mechanical properties.
ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe’s display will be rounded out by packaging steel products and further solutions for the car, truck, engineering and construction industries.
ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe will be presenting its new developments at Blechexpo in Stuttgart in hall 4, booth 4308 between November 3 and 6, 2015.
