Laundry and dishwashing
Manufacturers of laundry appliances and dishwashers look for steels that have good formability, uniform mechanical properties and which can be coated or enamelled. Used in applications such as the inner and outer drums of washing machines and dryers, and the back panels of many appliances, the steels must be suitable for highly efficient automated production lines.
Recommended products include:
- Cold rolled steels: ArcelorMittal’s cold rolled grades have very good surface purity, excellent uniformity of their mechanical properties and a high standard of flatness. Grades such as HC180CA AM FCE, HC220CA AM FCE and HC260CA AM FCE are suitable.
- Solfer® grades: Principally intended for direct-on white or coloured enamelling. Solfer® grades are also suitable for welding.
- Estetic® Wet (25 µm paint coating): Has a smooth coating and good resistance to liquid and powder detergents.
