NanoSteel combines the compelling attributes of iron-based alloys with new chemistries and mechanisms to deliver material properties and performance characteristics outside the boundaries of existing steels. NanoSteel has created progressive generations of iron-based alloys from metallic coatings to foils to powder metals and sheet steel. Current focus areas are strong and formable sheet steels (a combination of high strength and high ductility in cold formable steel) for automotive lightweighting applications and hard metal powders for 3D printing.

U.S. Steel has acquired Nanosteel’s advanced sheet steel intellectual property and trademarks.
