As an automotive structural material, the weldability of NanoSteel’s new advanced high-strength steel alloy, NXG™ 1200, is a critical attribute.

NanoSteel engaged EWI to evaluate the weldability of the material, both to itself and to other commonly used sheet steels.

EWI’s conclusion after working with the material is: “Resistance spot welding of NXG™ 1200 is straightforward when compared to the other advanced high-strength steels emerging. No significant deleterious phases are observed in the resistance spot weld in self-to-self welds or when welded to other current automotive sheet metal materials.”
