High-strength technology for safer vehicles


In close collaboration with its automotive customers, Constellium has developed a new high-strength aluminium Crash Management Systems (CMS) technology designed for the front and the rear of vehicles to enhance structural protection in the event of a collision. The product is stronger (10%), lighter (15%) and safer than products currently on the market, whilst still remaining cost-efficient.

The new-generation CMS combines the properties of formability, corrosion resistance, energy absorption and recyclability  with high-strength mechanical performance.
