Sheet-Steel Coating Delivers Cathodic Corrosion Protection for Hot Stamping

Just as galvanizing steel provides long-lasting corrosion protection for cold-formed automotive parts, the GammaProtect® electrolytic coating for steel to be hot-stamped yields an effective antirust finish that withstands the very high temperatures involved in hot stamping. The high-melting-point coating developed by ThyssenKrupp Steel protects against scaling and also prevents cathodic corrosion as actively as the galvanization process does for cold-forming steels. It expands the range of applications for hot stamping to include parts in the “wet” area of the car body. read...
