MaX 1.2 HY / MaX 1.6

The market’s only Advanced High Strength Stainless Steel (AHSS) for Body-in-White and chassis applications.

Main features

Starting in the 1990s and accelerating ever since the automobile industry has been defined by a revolution in innovation. New technologies, new regulations and new expectations require car manufacturers to think outside the box to find new ways to reduce weight, increase safety performance, and cut costs. To help manufacturers satisfy both current and future safety and emission requirements, Aperam decided it was time to innovate in a new hot stamping stainless steel family dedicated to structural components. The result is MaX – the market’s only Advanced High Strength Stainless Steel (AHSS) for Body-in-White and chassis applications. MaX wasn’t developed in a vacuum. Aperam worked directly with car manufacturers, an approach which allowed it to understand their challenges and create a solution that satisfied actual application needs. This collaborative approach continued to the production process. To produce MaX, Aperam partnered with market-leading companies including simulator, welding and component specialists. This collaboration resulted in the creation of an ultra-high strength steel that has a 20-30% lightweight performance and the cost-effectiveness of carbon steel. The recent projects have provided data on how MaX stacks up against current market solutions.
