South Korea To Develop World Lightest Steel Technology

This achievement has set a new scientific and social example of lightest steel technology,” said Lee Jung-hwan, director of KIMS. “KIMS will make the effort to contribute to the development of steel technology.”

The Korea Institute of Materials Science (KIMS) under the Ministry of Science and ICT announced on the 3rd that the results of Dr Lee Chang-hoon’s team in the steel materials research lab were listed in TOP100 materials selected by ‘Scientific Reports.’ Dr Lee’s research team was recognized for developing the world’s first lightweight stainless steel, which is about 20 per cent lighter than existing stainless steel.

Dr Lee’s research team was recognized for developing the world’s first lightweight stainless steel, which is about 20 per cent lighter than existing stainless steel.

In order to reduce the weight, the research team added 12 per cent of aluminium, which is easily broken, while, they reduced the brittleness of steel by optimizing the number of alloy elements, such as carbon, manganese, and chromium.

In particular, this material produces a thin oxide layer with chromium that enables it to withstand corrosion.

KIMS said that this research can promote the development of steel technology by overcoming corrosion and weight, which are the main disadvantages of existing steel. “This achievement has set a new scientific and social example of lightest steel technology,” said Lee Jung-hwan, director of KIMS. “KIMS will make the effort to contribute to the development of steel technology.”
