MSC Smart Steel is an innovative lightweight laminate that offers a formable, weldable, paintable substitute to steel at up to 35% weight savings compared with monolithic steel. This innovative product was engineered as an alternative to aluminum but can be processed through the same manufacturing processes as standard steel.
Designed with a high stiffness to weight ratio, MSC Smart Steel is a great candidate for stamped parts and is designed to be resistance spot welded like standard steel.
Candidates for MSC Smart Steel include stamped bumpers and vehicle body in white stampings that are typically produced from cold rolled steel. MSC Smart Steel is produced in coil form by Material Sciences Corporation (MSC).
