Superior Solutions for Steering Systems
As a vital component of the automotive body and chassis, steering systems convert user rotation into wheel swiveling. The proficiency of this system is key to safe and effective consumer experiences when operating vehicles. To ensure consumer safety as the automotive industry continues to trend toward lightweight, comfortable vehicles, OEMs seek ways to create lighter steering systems that also exhibit high strength and resistance to extreme performance conditions.
Solvay’s portfolio of solutions for superior steering systems includes various brands proven intentionally designed to deliver on key manufacturer trends, such as lightweighting and mechanical toughness. We provide materials that improve performance and mechanical properties under continuous, high-stress usage.
