From the perspective of crashworthiness and passenger safety, martensitic and complex phase Ultra High Strength Steels (UHSS) are ideal candidates for automotive anti-intrusion components. However, these steels must be protected from corrosive environments in order to maintain the longterm integrity of the structures involved for which continuous galvanizing is a cost-effective solution. Several challenges have to be overcome in order to process the above steels in the continuous galvanizing… CONTINUE READING
