#4: American Elements Cooperates with ArcelorMittal in Development of Unique Steel Grade

The Challenge

The development of new structural steels is essential to our long term future. For example, stronger steels mean less steel is required to build a pipeline or a skyscraper which in turn means less steel needs to be smelted leading to lower greenhouse gas emissions. So when the world’s largest steel producer, ArcelorMittal, turned to American Elements to design its next generation grades of steel, we were happy to oblige.

The Innovation

Working with ArcelorMittal researchers, we provided nanoscale raw materials to the new steel development program, including cobalt, copper and nickel nanoparticles of several diameters each and unique process flow materials such as tungsten tubing.

The Result

Nanoparticles have proven to strengthen steel by making it harder to deform reducing the amount of steel required in numerous applications, such as automotive applications.
