A vehicle consists of the body where people and cargo are carried and the chassis where devices required for the vehicle to drive. Our steel intended for vehicles provides different properties in terms of hardness, workability, weldability, corrosion resistance, formability, paintability and linearity, depending on where it is used in the vehicle. With recently ever-tightening environmental regulations, electric vehicles (EVs) and hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles (HFCVs) are emerging as alternatives to internal combustion engine vehicles. EVs are motor and battery of performance is essential, and hydrogen fuel the performance of hydrogen fuel cell is important. With excellent hardness, workability, weldability, corrosion resistance, formability, paintability and distincness of image gloss, POSCO's automotive steel is supplied only with quality products through a thorough quality certification process.
The body absorbs and diffuses shock to protect occupants upon impact. If the car is an electric vehicle, the body also works to protect the battery. The body consists of outer and inner panels and requires different performance in terms of formability, paintability, linearity, workability, weldability, anti-corrosiveness and more, depending on where they are used. POSCO delivers a wide range of cold rolled products and galvanized products to meet the different requirements for each body part.
