In case you were a bit confused by some of the discussion of some of the steels discussed in the “Light, Safe Steel” story that appears in the March-April issue (autofieldguide.com/articles/031002.html), here is a clarification from Ronald P. Krupitzer, vice president, Automotive Applications, Steel Market Development Institute, a business unit of AISI (autosteel.org): “’aluminized’ boron grades have an aluminized coating on them to protect the surface from oxidation during the hot stamping process normally used to make ultra high-strength parts like B-posts.”
