EBSD Characterisation of a high-strength lightweight steel

Advanced steels with high strength and good ductility are increasingly required for automotive components. They maximize safety by improving crashworthiness while reducing weight to improve fuel economy. Achieving these goals has driven the development of a new generation of lightweight steels.

By downloading this application note you will see:

  • How EBSD and EDS are powerful techniques for characterising steel and examining specific properties
  • The wealth of information that can be obtained is useful in understanding material mechanical properties

*Please note, this application note refers to NordlysMax3 and X-Max 80. These have since been upgraded to Symmetry and Ultim Max respectively.
