Stronger steel faster

    I suggest using a new method of steel processing which results in an end product that is lighter, stronger, and more environmentally friendly than traditional methods.
    The process takes only ten seconds, rather than the hours or days of heating in conventional steel plants. The metal is flash heated and then quickly cooled, which alters the microstructure of the steel and results in a product that is 7% stronger and 30% more flexible than traditional steel. And since the manufacturing process that uses up to 90% less energy than traditional blast furnaces, the steel is also more eco-friendly and less expensive to produce.
    The new steel is able to crumple before breaking, causing it to absorb impacts more easily than traditional steel, and opening up an array of applications in the automotive industry.
