2007 | Liotard and Arcelor Mittal R&D Industry | Belgium and France 6 min read
Liotard and Arcelor Mittal R&D Industry Gent of France and Belgium have partnered to develop a gas cylinder in high strength steel.
The designers have used a two-phase steel that is characterised by very good formability and high durability. The result is a gas cylinder in steel with about half the weight of its predecessors. It is easier to handle and less expensive to produce, which makes it possible to meet the competition from alternative materials.
