The very thin gauge steel (from 0.10 to 0.49 mm) is now a viable alternative to aluminium and plastic materials.
Thin gauge steel provides numerous benefits:
• Ever thinner gauges
ArcelorMittal has vast experience in the production of thin gauge steels. The average thickness on the market ranges from 0.17 to 0.49 mm, but ArcelorMittal has the expertise to produce 0.10 mm gauge steel.
• Excellent differentiation possibilities
Starting with uncoated steel, ArcelorMittal can provide innovative and differentiating looks:
+ 4 surface finishes (bright, brushed, silver, matte),
+ metal coating such as tin or zinc, as well as other coating solutions, including films, varnish, paint, aluminium or copper,
+ varnish and printing possibilities.
• Countless types of processing available
Thanks to a wide range of mechanical properties (from 230 to 620 MPa), these steels can be used for countless forming processes widely used in packaging:
+ Drawing and welding
+ Stapling and seaming
• Safe and environmentally friendly material
ArcelorMittal steels have two major advantages:
+ they are suitable for food contact, if the application so requires,
+ they are 100% recyclable, indefinitely,
+ they are the most recycled material.
