BORON STEEL

 

More steel means more protection. But the conundrum for our engineers was, how do we give you extra protection without adding extra weight that could cost you fuel savings? They looked to the aerospace industry for the answer and found it in boron steel.

Extra safety, extra savings

  • Boron Steel is an ultra-high-strength steel that Ford uses, along with low-alloy and dual-phase steels, to help protect you while still passing on fuel savings.
  • Because it can be melded into thinner components than normal steel, it’s lighter while still remaining super strong and stiff.

Super light, super strong

  • Their high yield and tensile strengths allow us to form complex shapes that can be wielded into key areas, such as pillars and bumpers.
  • Boron steel is used in the door intrusion beams of all Ford vehicles to help protect passengers in the event of a side impact, as well as other key areas on specific models, depending on their size and usage.
