More than 77 kg (170 lbs.) of high strength steels (70 parts) are used in the new Chrysler Omni and Horizon models. Nearly 50 percent of these high strength metals is dent resistant steel. Why these high strength steels are used and what components are in production, are reported in this paper. The production experiences with these materials for major components are discussed. The development and application of dent resistant steel for hood outer panels are also reported. The advantages of using these high strength materials are also discussed in this report.
