As one of Europe’s leading trade fairs, Blechexpo is an important platform for FCE for reaching the target groups. Within four exhibition days numerous valuable top management meetings with German customers were held.
We gained very positive feedback from our customers regarding our presence. With that in mind, we can conclude that our presence at Blechexpo 2013 was a success.
As it is already a good practice ArcelorMittal was represented by Flat Carbon Europe and Distribution Solutions in a common two-story stand.
Among other products ArcelorMittal highlighted Optigal™, a new coating line for the construction sector, whose special properties increase the performance and anti-corrosion characteristics. It has improved aesthetics and, using half as much zinc as is normally required, it is good for the environment, too.
Magnelis® (zinc-aluminium-magnesium) is another product which demonstrates an exceptional surface protection and offers self-healing on cut edges against corrosion. Our organic coated product offer for both outdoor and indoor use was also presented at the fair. These products belong to the Nature collection, which is Nspired by Nature, and are delivered with coatings and surface treatments free of hexavalent chromium and heavy metals (such as the xcelcoat® range: xcelcolour®, xcellook®, xceldesign®).
Amstrong® offers a full range of high strength and ultra high strength steels, which are available in thermomechanically hot rolled, cold formable grades. One of the most outstanding features of the Amstrong® range is its dimensional feasibility, enabling to achieve a higher efficiency in the conception of parts and a higher productivity in their realisation.
