What: Steel is reduced through layering
Innovation: Working with Productive Research and Ford Motor Co., Material Sciences engineers have developed a multilayer steel laminate that replaces low-carbon stamped-steel vehicle body parts. The product, developed for high-volume production, is a three-layer sandwich with steel outer skins and a low-density polymer. The material can be spot-welded and reduces steel use about 35 percent.
